The Emerald City Never Looked So Green

Seattle's St. Patrick's Day Parade


Seattle's annual St. Patrick's Day Parade will be marching along the newly green striped path on Saturday, March 17, 2018 beginning at 12:20 p.m. for the Irish Flag Raising at the King County Administration Building (located at 500 5th Avenue) where both Irish and the U.S. National Anthems will be played. Then the parade will proceed from Jefferson up 4th Avenue to Westlake Park. Then, the party continues all weekend long (March 17-18, 2018) at the Seattle Center Armory at 305 Harrison St. for the annual Irish Festival featuring  Irish music, singing, dancing, workshops, lectures, cultural displays, Irish art exhibits, children’s activities and traditional Irish food and beverages too. You could even win a free vacation to Ireland. The event runs from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. Both events will save you some green as admission is free!
