St. Patrick’s parade schedule in New Orleans

The first St. Patrick’s Day parade in the New Orleans area is Sunday.

The schedule via

Here is how this year’s St. Patrick’s Day/St. Joseph’s Day parade schedule shapes up:

  • Sunday, March 3: St. Bernard Irish/Italian/Islenos Parade, St. Bernard Parish at 11 a.m.

  • Friday, March 15: Molly’s at the Market Irish Parade, French Quarter – 6 p.m.
  • Saturday, March 16: Irish Channel Parade – 1 p.m.
  • Sunday, March 17: St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Metairie Road, Metairie – 11 a.m.
  • Sunday, March 17: Downtown Irish Club Parade through the French Quarter – 6:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, March 24: Louisiana Irish-Italian Parade, Metairie – 12 noon

Although it is impossible to predict what the weather will be like, mid-March is generally one of the most comfortable times of the year in New Orleans. Temperatures are likely to be at least in the 70s – maybe even low 80s – but probably no lower. More than likely you can get out there in your shorts and T-shirts but – if at all possible – WEAR GREEN! On St. Paddy’s Day in New Orleans, EVERYONE is Irish for a day.

Historically, the parade’s most famous throws, are cabbages, carrots, onions…and moonpies! (You may even see a potato or two in the air!)
