The 2021 New York City Saint Patrick’s Day Parade will be celebrated on Wednesday, March 17, 2021. The Parade is the oldest and largest parade in the world and has marched on the streets of New York City every year since 1762, fourteen years before the Declaration of Independence that established the United States of America. This year will mark the 260th St Patrick’s Day parade in New York City.

We invite everyone across the world to join us and be part of the celebrations of St. Patrick’s Day in New York City, as we honor the representatives for all the brave men and women who have done so much for so many during the pandemic and 9/11.

On March 17th the Parade leaders will join a select number of First Responders and Essential Workers (listed below)
to offer a prayer for all the victims of the pandemic and the “Twin Towers” to mark the 20th anniversary of 9/11 for the live stream event.
