The New Haven Saint Patrick's Day Parade starts at Chapel Street and Sherman Avenue and ends at Grove and Orange Streets and starts at 1PM.
Since the mid-1950ís the St. Patrickís Day Parade of Greater New Haven has become one of New Englandís premier Irish events. It is the largest, single-day spectator event in the State of Connecticut. As the 6th oldest parade in the nation, its fame was recognized by the Library of Congress in 1999. This keepsake of New Havenís Irish community became a national keepsake when the Library of Congress selected the Greater New Haven St. Patrickís Day Parade as an outstanding example of American folk life.
