The 165th Annual St. Patrick's
Day Parade in San Francisco
is a well established event with
historic ties to the city. The
parade itself is a huge draw for
attendees from all different
demographics and ethnicity.
The addition of the Festival after the parade provides a great
opportunity for attendees to learn more about Irish history and
culture while having fun experiencing the event. A full day of
activity is planned for the St. Patrick's Day Festival at Civic
Center Plaza and on Grove Street, Polk to Larkin Street.
The colorful festivities surrounding the parade will showcase
Irish Culture through live performance and entertainment,
arts and crafts exhibitors, food and beverage concessions,
children's rides and inflatables, cultural displays, a petting zoo
and pony ride and a number of non-profits booths representing
the Irish community.
The Festival will take place,
before, during and after the
Parade on Saturday. The
Parade begins at 11:30 a.m.
on Saturday at the corner of
Second and Market, where
more than 5,000 participants
from all over the states, will reel about with laughter and revelry all
the way to City Hall. Join us for this great San Francisco event, which
is the largest St. Patrick's day event west of the Mississippi.
