Saturday, March 19th – Dallas St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival
On Saturday, March 19th Dallas will celebrate its 37th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival on Greenville Avenue, starting at 11 AM. The parade route stretches from Blackwell & Greenville to Greenville & SMU Blvd.
More than 125,000 people are expected to be in attendance along the 2 mile route, and there will be more than 90 floats in the parade with a total of approximately 1,700 parade participants. One of the groups participating will be our very own For the Love of the Lake (FTLOTL).
If you have volunteered with FTLOTL or would otherwise like to be a part of their parade entry, contact them here.
A lively and enjoyable day is expected for all at the largest St. Patrick’s parade in the Southwest!

A limited number of tickets are available for those who would like bleacher seats outside the Meadows Building at 5646 Milton. The cost for these seats is $20 for each adult and $15 for each child. It is recommended that, if the bleacher seats interest you, you purchase tickets well ahead of time here. Bear in mind that the seating is first-come, first-serve and the parade starts promptly at 11 AM.
Proceeds from the parade benefit the Greenville Avenue Area Business Association’s scholarship fund, a not-for-profit that has donated $72,500 to Dallas ISD since the parade’s inception.
