The 2012 Kansas City St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Theme—Forty Years of Fáilte
The 40th Annual Kansas City St. Patrick’s Day Parade will kickoff Saturday, March
17, 2012 at 11:00 am. The Parade has become Kansas City’s largest single-day
civic event, as well as one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day Parades in the nation.
Tens of thousands of onlookers line the streets to see the hundreds of Irish
Floats, Bands, Families, Organizations, Business entries and others celebrate the
Feast Day of St. Patrick and our Irish Heritage.
The objective of the Kansas City St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee is to successfully present the Parade in a safe, entertaining and enjoyable manner for
all who attend. Our focus is on the families and thousands of children lining
the streets of Kansas City to celebrate the heritage and tradition of the Irish in
America on St. Patrick’s Day
