SUNDAY MARCH 11th 2018
Michigan Ave. from 6th St. to 14th St., Detroit
Perhaps one of Michigan’s most renowned St. Patrick’s Day events is Detroit’s Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. This family-friendly event is sure to entertain all who attend with the various floats. The parade route is on Michigan Avenue through historic Corktown. If you’re planning to go, it may be a good idea to arrive a bit early for the best vantage point.
CorkTown Streets start filling up with party people. Tailgating / Bars / Pubs / Beer Tents / Festivals
The Parade, which includes marching and pipe & drum bands, color guard units, floats, clowns, novelty groups and marching units, moves west on Michigan Ave., passes the reviewing stand and disperses at 14th Street, approximately 2 hours later.
Once the Parade disperses its back to a street-wide party!
Please be as festive in Irish colors and Costumes as possible. The Greener the better as far as we are concerned!
Best Parking is on the North side of Michigan Ave. Guests begin arriving as early as 7am when the Bars / Pubs / Street side Beer tents and festivals start to open their gates. Adults will find all kinds of watering holes to wet their whistles!
Be sure to check out the Giant Beer tents at Michigan Ave and Vermont St.
Everyone please be safe and smart. Lock your cars. Don’t leave anything of value in site. Make note of where you parked. Arrive early for best parking. Dress for the weather. Come be IRISH for the day.
