Who doesn’t want to be Irish for a day? Brush off your green Leprechaun hat and coat, take your four-leaf clover out of retirement, and pop in Sturgeon Bay for more than a wee bit of Blarney during the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 15.

It may not be a national holiday, but communities all over the country celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with parades, festivals, and the “wearing of the green.” Sturgeon Bay is no exception – though they won’t dye the Sturgeon Bay waters green, they will have floats, cars, trucks, horses, Leprechauns, and of course St. Patrick himself parading through downtown.

The parade starts promptly at 11 am on the West Side at Sawyer Park and goes up Oak Street to Madison Avenue. It turns south on Maple, goes across the Oregon Street Bridge, then turns left on Third Avenue to Jefferson Street, before ending at 7th Avenue.

Awards for Best Irish Entry, Best Tavern/Bar Entry, Best Retail Entry, and Best Non-Profit Entry will be given.
