Washington DC Saint Patricks Day Parade

The first St. Patrick's Day Parade in Washington, DC was held in 1972 and traveled along Massachusetts Avenue from Dupont Circle to the statue of Robert Emmet. Since then, this annual affair has grown from what was little more than a leisurely stroll by a few hundred participants to what is now being called "The Nation's St. Patrick's Day Parade." In 1974, the Constitution Avenue route was established and the march became a full-scale Parade with Marching Bands, Pipe Bands, our Nation's Military, Police, and Fire Departments as well as Floats, Novelty Groups and those marchers wearing green. Trophies are now awarded in a number of categories to participants. The Parade is always held on the Sunday before St. Patrick's Day.Constitution Avenue and all cross-streets from 7th to 17th streets will be closed to traffic from 11:30 am until the end of the parade, at approximately 2:15 pm, as well as Madison and Jefferson from 7th to 14th streets.
