Saint Patrick’s Day Parade Paris
March 14 @ 13:00 - 15:30
Celebrate St Patrick’s Day in Paris with a parade organised by the Centre Culturel Irlandais.
More information from Facebook event below:
On a day when Irish people will be celebrating friendships all around the world we invite you to #getyourgreenon and join Irish in France together with Franco-Irish business, cultural, sports associations, and school groups to celebrate Ireland and its most famous saint on the streets of Paris! Families and friends, we look forward to welcoming you to the parade – come walk with us, enjoy the party atmosphere and have a great afternoon!
#FunFact We start the parade on our very own street!
The parade will assemble and depart from the Centre Culturel Irlandais on the rue des Irlandais in the 5th arrondissement. Following welcome speeches from our guests of honour at 13h00 the parade will depart at 13h30 on a short course around the 5th arrondissement before returning to the CCI.
Thank you, Merci, Go raibh maith agaibh.
