Irish in Philadelphia celebrated St. Patrick's Day as early as 1771, six years
before the Declaration of Independence was signed ! The first documented St.
Patrick's Day Celebration Parade in Philadelphia was held in 1771, marking over
235 continuous years of celebrations. This parade is the 2nd oldest Parade in
the Country, topped only by the New York City Parade. The current parade, which
is hosted by the St. Patrick's Day Observance Association, was incorporated as a
non profit organization in 1952.
Throughout the years this celebration has honored this religious and cultural
celebration. Thousands of marchers and spectators in their green bedecked
finery, the bands and floats, the flags and music highlight one of the grandest
parades in a city that loves parades. Contact: The St. Patrick's Day Observance Association P.O.
