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 or more. Bring the whole family to watch this nationally recognized event!
