St. Patrick’s Day Parade

11The City of Winter Park and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee are proud to present the 37th Annual Winter Park St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years and it is currently recognized by people of other ethnicities. This is the only St. Patrick’s Day Parade in central Florida, so wear some green and gather your family and friends to enjoy the annual Irish festivities. The parade will begin at the Winter Park Country Club and proceed south down Park Avenue to Lyman Avenue. More than 75 units will participate.

The day is widely celebrated by wearing green clothing and items such as shamrocks. According to Irish tradition, those who do not wear green on St. Patrick’s Day face the risk of being affectionately pinched. The celebration will also feature Irish music and step-dancing at the main stage in Central Park with demonstrations by three Irish dance schools including Sarah Costello, Tir Na Greine and the Watters School of Irish Dance. Irish music will be provided by Mike Daly.

This celebration is made possible by the generous support of event sponsors including the City of Winter Park’s Community Redevelopment Agency, Fiddler’s Green Irish Pub and Eatery, the Irish American Cultural Society of Central Florida, and Florida Distributors Company.
