8th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade

The annual Muskegon St. Patrick’s Day Parade will kickoff Saturday March 16, 2019 at 11:00am and will run from Fourth Ave. to Jefferson Street along Clay Ave.

Our goal is to celebrate the Feast Day of St. Patrick and Muskegon’s Irish Heritage. In celebration, we will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Catholic Charities of West Michigan. Instead of charging an entry fee for The Parade, we are asking entrants to bring one non-perishable food item per participant, but we hope that you will contribute much more than one item a piece!

We ask each entrant to reflect the parade theme of St. Patrick’s Day, and decorate their entry appropriately in keeping with Irish tradition and our patron saint, St. Patrick. Don’t forget to make a sign so spectators can identify you! All entrants must fill out the attached application. Applications must be mailed by the March 8, 2019 to be considered.

Please contact us if you have any questions concerning the application process or anything else about the Parade. 

Thank you for helping to make this Muskegon tradition successful -- we look forward to seeing you on St. Patrick’s Day!
