St. Pat's for All
The St. Pat's for All parade celebrates the diversity of the Irish and Irish American communities of New York. First held in 2000, St.Pat's for All cherishes and celebrates an inclusive St. Patrick's season. Ours is the first in the 260 years + of Irish parades in New York City to be open and welcoming to all who wish to share in the spirit of the day. We err on the side of hospitality. Our theme "cherishing all the children of the nation equally" is taken from the 1916 Easter Proclamation of the Irish Republic. It is a vision drawn from our past and a guide for our present & future.
This will be our 21st annual St Pats For All celebration. On March 1 we will gather once again in Sunnyside and Woodside to celebrate our Irish culture and heritage. Whether in exile, fleeing famine, or pursuing dreams and hopes for liberty, equality and happiness, the Irish through the centuries have scattered across the globe always enhancing the communities they join.
St Pat's for All organizes, produces and hosts the annual the St. Pat's for Allparade in New York City. The parade welcomes all to celebrate Irish heritage and culture regardless of race, gender, creed or sexual orientation. This unique celebration takes place in the borough of Queens in the month of March.
