The Washington D.C. 46th Annual St. Patrick’s Parade

The 46th Annual St. Patrick’s Parade of Washington, D.C. will be held on Sunday, March 12, 2017.

Early Registration for out of town bands is now OPEN.
The 4th Annual Limerick Golf Challenge, benefiting the St. Patrick’s Parade Committee and the Salute Military Golf Association will be held on Thursday, September 15th, 2016.


The tournament is at Northwest Golf Club on Layhill Road in Silver Spring and is a terrific event, with a full breakfast at the club prior to the shotgun start at 9am, prizes for closest to the pin on 2 holes, longest drive, low net, low gross, etc., at the awards ceremony. In addition, after play is concluded, the Limerick hosts the awards and a fabulous buffet back at the Pub, with starters, hot and cold entrees, dessert, an open bar and a silent auction.


The mission of the St. Patrick’s Parade of Washington, D.C. is to foster the understanding of and celebrate the Irish culture in America. The St. Patrick’s Day Parade has been held annually in Washington, D.C., since 1971. This annual affair has grown from what was little more than a leisurely stroll by a few hundred participants on Massachusetts Avenue to a mile long, two-hour celebration of Irish culture along Constitution Avenue.
