To promote Irish and Celtic culture throughout the City of Raleigh and the entire Triangle area through the Raleigh St. Patrick's Day Parade and Festival, a family friendly fun event.
The Raleigh St. Patrick's Day Parade and Festival are presented by the Raleigh St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee. The Committee is made up of just a few volunteers who work hard all year to make the parade and festival happen. The 2017 Parade will be the 35th! Every Year, the Raleigh Saint Patrick's Day Parade Committee works hard to raise funds to cover the costs of the parade and festival (it is not finacially supported by the City of Raleigh) and with excess proceeds, we donate back to local charities. Girls on the Run, The Helping Hand Mission, Be the Match, and St. Baldrick's are just a few.
