With more than 100,000 spectators lining the streets – Pittsburgh’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade – is just as popular a holiday tradition, as is wearing the color green during this historic Celtic celebration.

The parade starts at the intersection of Liberty Avenue and 11th Street, and proceeds to Grant Street, and then on to the Boulevard of the Allies, where it will turn right and head down the Boulevard of the Allies to the reviewing stand at Stanwix Street, and will end at Commonwealth Place. The parade begins at 10 AM and ends at 2 PM.

After the parade, the fun continues at downtown Pittsburgh’s Market Square for the Irish Fair in the Square, where all are invited to gather for a family-friendly day of live music, street performances, and more.
