Welcome to Huddersfield St. Patrick's Day Parade Celebration and the 20th Parade - the World's Second Shortest St. Patrick's Day Parade! (that we know of...) at 32m - 1 meter for each County of Ireland,  from the Station Steps to The Harold Wilson Statue!

This year we are proposing a change of format for The Parade  from it's traditional format of a Parade around the town starting and finishing at Huddersfield Irish Centre, as it has done since 2oo1 - to a Celebration Event in St. George's Square, featuring The World's second shortest St. Patrick's Day Parade of 32m (105ft). The Shortest Parade in the World being in Hot Springs, Arkansas, America at 98ft.
The Celebration in the Square will include:
Traditional Irsh music and Dance, featuring:
The Francis Cassidy School of Irish Dancing
Irish Centre Set Dancers
St. Patrick's School Choir
Across the Moone (modern Irish Duo)
Giants Causeway (Irish Rock Band)
The Celebration will include a Bar and Food Vendors in The Square.
In addition, a display of 'come and have a go' Gaelic Football, with the Brothers Pearse GAA is aso planned.
The celebration has received Council Approval and we are very grateful to Kirklees Council and associated agencies in assiting us with ensuring all is in place for a safe and enjoyable event.
The Parade is working with Huddersfield Irish Centre and St. Patrick's Centre, who are planning to host a whole programme of activity from St. Patrick's Day Thursday 17th March through to the Sunday 20th March - of which full details can be found on the Events page
As we have celebrated St. Patrick's Day on 17th March, we look forward to bringing you the 20th Huddersfield St. Patrick's Day Parade Celebration on the 20th March!
