St. Patrick’s Day Festivities
Join us in March for Wisconsin’s largest Saint Patrick’s Day Parade with an Irish Fest the same day in downtown New London, Wisconsin. Each year the legendary week of Irish festivities begin when devious local Shamrock Club leprechauns change the town’s name to ‘New Dublin’.
St. Patrick’s Day Parade
The Grand Parade typically has an extensive lineup of bagpipe bands, marching bands, festive clowns, specialty units, clans, an Irish wake parody, and business floats–up to 125 units. Bring the whole family to watch this nationally recognized event!
New Dublin Irish Fest
Irish Fest is a music festival the same day as the parade held under a huge heated big top. Each year it features three dynamic Celtic bands with a variety of folk, rock and traditional tunes. Various vendors sell Irish food & beverages and you can browse market booths.
