24th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade on the Old Sacramento Waterfront
Saturday, March 14, 11am, Old Sacramento Waterfront, no cover
Update: Old Sacramento Waterfront has announced the parade has been canceled to follow new guidance on coronavirus.
It’s Patrick’s day. At least for the Patrick who drove the snakes from Ireland. A strange reason to celebrate a day with Guinness and green, but any excuse to parade through the streets is good enough. The Old Sacramento Waterfront will be chock full of marchers, Irish and Highland Dancers, pipe and drum bands, historical re-enactors and a whole lot of green. You’ll have to cook you own corned beef and soda bread, though. The first celebration of this holiday may have been in 1737 America, but it was officially made an Irish holiday in 1906. So break out your fake Irish accent and everything green for the 24th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Sacramento. There will be live music starting early and absolutely guaranteed no snakes whatsoever. You can thank St. Patrick for that. 1002 2nd St., godowntownsac.com.
