Join for the 62nd Annual Denver St. Patrick's Day Parade! You don't want to miss the best and biggest parade west of the Mississippi River! The St Patrick’s Day Parade has been a hallmark of The Mile High City since 1962, celebrating a deep love for the Irish culture. The parade will start on Wynkoop Street at 19th Avenue, then turn southeast down 17th Avenue before turning northeast on Blake Street (renamed Tooley Street for the parade), then continue on Blake Street until 27th Avenue.

Checklist for Parade Day

  • Arrive early to stake out your favorite spot!
  • The best place for families is at the end of the parade on Blake Street from 23rd to 27th avenues.
  • March is known for wildly varying weather. It might be cold, hot, who knows! Dress in layers and bring plenty of water.
  • To catch the parade entries full performance (dancing, full music sets, etc.) the best spot is south of 20th avenue on Blake Street (which will be renamed Tooley Street for the Parade). This is probably the most crowded area of the parade and is standing room only. Folks will arrive as early as 6am to stake out a spot.
  • Have fun and enjoy the parade! You don't have to be Irish to enjoy the parade!
