Saint Patrick’s Day Parade 2016

This year, the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade is going to be a little different! Instead of celebrating and enjoying the parade on  Thursday, March 17th (St. Patrick’s Day), it will be Friday, March 18th!


It was decided to change the date due to the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament, will be in town. The Greater Des Moines Convention & Visitors Bureau wanted to make sure everyone would be able to attend and enjoy this classic, annual event!

This year, that parade will start at Noon and it will run the same route as years past! Heading north on 15th Street from MLK to Grand Avenue, then turning east on Grand to 8th Street, where the parade participants will disburse to the south on 8th Street before joining the celebration at the Downtown Marriott.

Dress in green and celebrate!
