The St. Joseph Saint Patrick’s Day Parade born in 1867 and later reborn in 1986 to provide the people of Saint Joseph and the surrounding area an opportunity to celebrate their Irish heritage. In 1997, to keep the original idea of the Parade alive, the Ancient Order of Hibernians began their organization of the Parade and with the help of the people of the area have made it a growing success.
Join Grand Marshals, The Crotty Family, as we march in celebration of our Irish heritage!
The Hibernians are proud to partner again with Second Harvest Food Bank and their efforts to fight hunger. Parade participants and those watching are encouraged to bring can goods to help in this fight.
We ask all those who attend to use their best judgment in participation during this environment, if you feel unsure about attending; there will always be another parade next year!
