Get Ready! Downtown Milwaukee is about to be filled with loads of green, leprechauns, and happiness this Saturday, March 12th. 

Parade RouteAfter a two year hault, the Shamrock Club of Wisconsin and The Westown Association are pleased to announce the return of the 54th St.Patrick’s Day Parade! Presented by Miller Lite, the parade kicks off at noon on Saturday, March 12th and begins on West Wisconsin Ave. and N. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. (formerly Old World Third St.), and ends at Water St. and Highland Ave.

We are thrilled to bring the St. Patrick’s Day Parade back to downtown’s streets and celebrate our city’s rich Irish heritage,” said Mike Boyle, Shamrock Club of Wisconsin Parade Director. “After a few years away, we are planning a very special event and know families will be delighted to see the return of one of Milwaukee’s favorite traditions.”





Fun fact, Milwaukee’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is one of the oldest St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the nation, dating back to 1843! Grab your friends and family and join us downtown for over 120 units of Irish joy: Irish dance groups, pipe and drum corps, local celebrities and more!
