For the 2015 Detroit St. Patrick's Parade, there was a sea of green with thousands of families and friends celebrating! It was our 57th annual Parade with warm(er) weather and a balmy breeze!
The United Irish Societies (UIS) sponsors the parade and it was held on Sunday, March 15, 2015. It started at noon on Michigan Avenue and 6th Street, continuing down to 14th Street. Click HERE for the 2015 Detroit St. Patrick's Parade Winners.
In 1959, the United Irish Societies, sponsored the first St. Patrick's Parade in Dearborn, MI. The Parade route follows along Michigan Avenue through the area known as Corktown. Corktown received it's name as the Irish were the largest ethnic group of newcomers to Detroit, most of them from County Cork. The Corktown neighborhood is Detroit's oldest surviving neighborhood.
Everyone is welcomed to march in the parade. The 2016 58th Detroit St. Patrick's Parade is Sunday, March 13, 2016, starting at 12:00 noon. Be sure to mark your calendars!
A heartfelt thank you for everyone involved with the 2015 parade! There was countless hours, effort and dedication that went into making the 2015 parade the huge success it was.
