Wear Lots of Green for Denver's St. Patrick's Day Parade on March 16th

March 12, 2024

Denver's annual St. Patrick's Day parade is set to be the most spectacular event yet! Join friends, family, and the local community in celebration of Irish culture with colorful floats and lively music throughout downtown Denver. Grab your green gear and get ready to join in on the festivities.

Macaroni KID Tips

  • Get there early to grab a spot and bring a picnic breakfast along to keep the kids busy
  • Ride the light rail downtown and find a prime spot directly across from Union Station. If you sit on the west side of the street the sun will hit you first, seats on the east side will be a little cooler longer. 
  • The parade can be up to four hours long, decide when it's time to pack it in and head home, your kids aren't going to make it the full four hours!
  • Groups that do performances will do their full performance near the Judges' Stand and VIP tent, but that will also be the most crowded area to see the parade.
  • Grab some festive St. Patrick's Day gear at the Dollar Store or find some light-up shamrock gear before heading to the parade. There will be vendors going up and down the street with fun things your children will beg for unless they've already got something in their hands!
