Welcome to Huddersfield St. Patrick's Day Parade - The 2020 & 2021 Parade's were unfortunately cancelled due to Coronavirus but we are now planning A 20th Parade Celebration and the World's Second Shortest St. Patrick's Day Parade! (32m - 1 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.
 
It is proposed the Celebration in the Square will include Irsh music and Dance, featuring:
The Francis Cassidy School of Irish Dancing
St. Patrick's School Choir
Traditional Irish Music
Across the Moon (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 is all Subject to Council Approval but we are working with Kirklees to secure permission, which is anticipated early February.
 
In anticipation of approval 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 - which we'll update you on as details become confirmed!
 
In the meantime, we'll continue to make Plans and hopefully be able to bring you the 20th Huddersfield St. Patrick's Day Parade Celebration on the 20th March!
