2013 Lexington Kentucky St Patrick's Day Parade & Festival:
Saturday & Sunday
March 16 & 17, 2013
Join us for the two day celebration
Rain or shine. See event URL for all the details.
The parade will form on Midland Ave, march down Main Street and will turn left on South Upper and
proceed to Vine where it will end.
The Bluegrass Irish Society was formed in 1980 and initiated the St. Patrick’s Day Parade as its first activity. The parade gained instant credibility when then Governor John Y. Brown and first lady Phyllis George Brown co-sponsored it and arranged to have Ed McMahon from the Johnny Carson Show to be our first Grand Marshal. The rest, as they say, is history.
