St. Patrick’s Parade

Mar 11

About the Event

The St. Patrick’s Parade, hosted annually in Downtown St. Charles, has become a family tradition. Thousands of people of all ages line Main Street to watch the antics of cheerful leprechauns, listen to award-winning local marching bands, watch the elaborate and colorful floats glide down the street, pay tribute to the walking units of veterans, hear the melodic strains of the Celtic pipe bands, and see all the best that St. Charles has to offer. 


The parade steps off at 2:00pm each year at Main and 6th Street. The route continues down Main Street and concludes at 4th Avenue. 


Please note that the dog costume contest will NOT be taking place this year. We hope to find an interested sponsor and have it return in 2018.
