Milwaukee St. Patrick’s Day Parade returns after 2-year hiatus
MILWAUKEE - The 54th Shamrock Club of Wisconsin St. Patrick’s Day Parade returns to downtown Milwaukee on Saturday, March 12 at noon.
The parade steps off at North Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive (formerly Old World Third Street) and West Wisconsin Avenue ending at Water Street and Highland Avenue.
The parade was canceled two days before it was scheduled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and postponed again in 2021 due to Milwaukee’s public gathering restrictions at the time.
This will also be the first parade in the city since the 2021 Waukesha Christmas Parade.
The Milwaukee Dancing Grannies are set to perform at the parade, where they will be honored along with other victims of the Waukesha tragedy. First responders will also be honored for their dedicated service throughout the pandemic.
