St Patrick's Day parades
Sligo St Patrick's Day Parade
The theme for this years Sligo St Patricks Day Parade will be “Ceol agus Craic”! The idea is to both celebrate Sligo's rich musical scene as well as encourage parade entrants to add some ‘Craic’ to their float designs!
After last years hugely successful three day event which included a new parade route, livegigs in Stephen St Plaza, live parade stream as well as a family fun day, this years eventpromises lots of fun for all the family.
The parade route will be the same as last year with some extra entertainment added along the route (watch this space) as well as a Trad Trail around the town on the evening before and after the parade itself.
As always, there will be prizes for best entries as well as best dressed person in the
crowd and local businesses have the chance to win a prize for the ‘Best Dressed
The parade will take place at midday on March 17th, 2023 and will feature a variety
of musical performances, dance groups, and community organizations. Participants
are encouraged to get creative with their costumes and floats, incorporating
elements of music and fun into their designs.
