St. Patrick’s Parade

The 2017 AOH St. Patrick’s Parade theme has been announced – “ONE UNITED IRELAND. The parade will be held on Saturday, March 11th, 2017.

As many as 150 units are expected again for this year’s parade that will step-off at 3 p.m. at Baxter and Broadway proceeding along the Baxter/Bardstown Road corridor. Often called the “people’s” parade, families join a mix of decorated vehicles and groups along the route. As many as 100,000+ people watched or marched in last year’s parade.

The 2017 Parade Application can be downloaded here.

Rules & Regulations can be downloaded here.

Stay up to date by following us on our Parade Facebook Page for parade specific information and announcements.  To keep up to date with ALL of our events, consider joining us on our local AOH Facebook page.

The morning of the parade, we invite all to enjoy an Irish Breakfast followed by Noon Mass.

The Grand Marshal will be the Irish Person of the Year who was selected by AOH officers and members.

Each year, the Louisville Hibernians put together, with the wonderful help of all of our “Irish” friends, the greatest parade of ALL TIME!

We celebrate Annual Parade with a week of events open to all. We had a wonderful time at The Wearing O’ the Green Party! Hope to see you all back there next year!

The parade festivities this week also included The Blessing of the Beer and a Tapping of the Keg.

Special thanks to our sponsors – without them, this Parade Celebration would not be possible! Please support them…so they can keep supporting our great community!
