The super-popular Indianapolis St. Patrick’s Day Parade is expected to return for 2022! The beloved traditions of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, St. Patrick’s Tent party, and Greening of the Canal in Indy are again going to happen after a two year hiatus due to COVID-19.
Indianapolis St. Patrick’s Day Parade
The St. Patrick’s Day Parade will take place on Thursday, March 17 beginning at 11:30 am. The parade is typically made-up of Irish-themed floats, bands, dancers, school kids, and local Irish organizations and companies. The parade starts at North and Pennsylvania Streets, heads south to Ohio Street, and then back North on Meridian Street. Get downtown early to find your spot!
St. Patrick’s Day Parade Tent and Block Party
In addition to the parade, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Tent and Block Party will be back on North Street, between Meridian and Pennsylvania Streets, beginning at 9 am. Food trucks, activities, and a large heated tent with a beer garden and live entertainment are just some of the things you’ll find to do!
The Greening of the Canal in Indy will take place the day before on Wednesday, March 16. This event is also in person and full of music and food trucks. But the committee will continue to stream the Greening of the Canal online.
While we’re really excited to have this event back in Indy, let’s remember that all events are subject to change. Let’s hope the luck of the Irish is with us in 2022!
