The parade proceeds east to Plankinton, north on Plankinton to Kilbourn, west on Kilbourn to Old World Third Street, north on Old World Third Street to Juneau to Water Street, south on Water Street to Highland.
The St. Patrick's Day Parade takes place at our original home along Wisconsin Avenue. March 10 will see the Shamrock Club's return to Wisconsin Avenue for the ninth time in over two decades. This has been the
largest St. Patrick's Day Parade in Wisconsin, and in 2012, was viewed by 85,000 spectators, who endured blistering cold winds and amazing sunshine.
The downtown parade has been the largest parade of any type in
Wisconsin for most of the past seven years, and this year we are
staying true to that history. Check our parade site at Saint Patrick's Parade. Thanks for joining the Shamrock Club, and our partners, Westown, and Miller Lite, for what has become one of the largest St Patrick's Day Parades in North America. It is the greatest family friendly event of the season. We will host eight Irish dance schools, pipe bands,
clowns, drill teams, marching bands, and the most Irish organizations in the greater Milwaukee area. It is a spectacle to behold, and a very Irish display of our honor to St. Patrick. It was a wonderful display of our Irish pride.
The Milwaukee Chapter of the Friends of St Patrick and Milwaukee's Hunger Task Force will collect non-perishable food along the parade route again this year.
Thanks to all who join us on the greatest day of the year. And thanks for being a part of Milwaukee's Irish history and present. And remember - Everyone is Irish for St. Patrick's Day!!!
