St Patrick's Day Parades

St Patrick's Day Parades in New Jersey.
Updated 2021 Scheduled Events and Cancellations

March is the time for the Irish Americans to plan and celebrate St. Patrick's Day with all it's festivities, parades, entertainment, and of course some green beer and Corn Beef and Cabbage.

And for others, (mostly Irish wannabes for the day) they will join in with their Irish friends for a trip to the local Irish pub for some Irish beer and entertainment.





One of the myths that has perpetuated is that "Corn Beef and Cabbage" is a typical Irish meal. Before the Irish came to America, corn beef was not a staple of the Irish diet in Ireland. You would have to go to the Jewish deli's in Ireland to find Corn Beef. When the Irish came to America they found corn beef much more affordable and soon began to substitute Corn Beef for Bacon and other meat staples along with Cabbage.

St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland is known for bringing Christianity to Ireland. Others have recognized him for ridding Ireland of snakes. This may be mostly myth as snakes was probably symbolic of putting an end to pagan practices. Today, St. Patrick's Day has come to be a day when everything and everyone Irish have come to celebrate all that is Irish --- with an added twist on some American adopted traditions.

 Due to health and well-being concerns associated with the COVID-19 Virus, many of the towns have either cancelled or postponed this years St. Patrick's Day celebration. 


Stay tuned --- we will be updating this list as the event sponsors confirm the status  of this year's events.
