The Ballyshaners were disappointed to learn that the Washington, D.C. St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee will not be able to hold their event this year. Funding major events like our parades is a year-round endeavor, facing ever-changing and increasing expenses.

We encourage parade units from the D.C. Parade that might not have joined us previously to register for the 2019 Alexandria St. Patrick’s Day Parade. (Click here to register). 

Old Town Alexandria is less than 4 miles from the Washington, D.C. parade. Alexandria’s parade route is surrounded by dozens of restaurants, pubs, and retail businesses that look forward to welcoming visitors and event participants on Parade Day every year. Come for the parade and stay to enjoy the diverse attractions of Old Town Alexandria!

We encourage your continued support for the D.C. Parade Committee, and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday, March 2, 2019!
