The 2013 NY City Saint Patrick's Day Parade:
Join us on New York's famous 5th Avenue for the 2013 NYC Saint Patrick's Day Parade. This year, because March 17th falls on a Sunday (our day of Observance) the parade will be held on March 16th at 11:00 AM.
The parade marches up Fifth Avenue past St. Patrick's Cathedral at 50th Street all the way up past the American Irish Historical Society at 83rd and the Metropolitan Museum of Art at 83rd Street to 86th Street, where the parade finishes at around 4:30 - 5:00 pm.
The New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade is our country’s oldest and proudest Irish tradition, marching for the first time 250 years ago, on March 17, 1762 - fourteen years before the Declaration of Independence.
To avoid the crowds that pack the sidewalks below 59th Street, go anywhere North of 66th Street and Fifth Avenue.
