You're invited to the 21st Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade and Charlotte Goes Green Festival on Saturday, March 18, 2017.Thousands of spectators watched last year's parade as it marched through the heart of Charlotte to the sound of pipes and the cheers of the spectators lining the streets on a perfect day. The combination of flags, floats, kids, and pipe band music made everyone smile and be Irish for a day. The parade has grown to be one of Charlotte's biggest & best. The 21st Annual Parade promises to be another great one!The Charlotte Goes Green Festival was very well attended as capacity crowds enjoyed the beautiful afternoon weather as they listened to Irish music, watched performances by Irish dancers, played in the Celtic Kids Zone, had lots to eat and checked out the great Irish/Celtic vendors that attend the festival from around the U.S.The parade will step off at 11 a.m. at N. Tryon St. and 9th Street in uptown Charlotte.
Our Grand Marshal for 2017 is Art Fitzgerald.
