Parade Route

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 twelfth time in over two decades. This has been the largest St. Patrick's Day Parade in Wisconsin, as well as the largest parade in Wisconsion.

The downtown parade has been the largest parade of any type in Wisconsin for most of the past decade, 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 Coors, 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!!!
