Join the fun!

Update: Due to bad weather conditions the parade has been rescheduled to the weekend of April 7, 2024.

Founded in 1971, the St. Patrick Parade of Jefferson has been taking to the streets of Old Metairie for over fifty years in celebration of St. Patrick's Day.

We proudly present a parade of over 100 floats, trucks, bands, marching clubs and all the throws you can get your hands on. Rolling down Severn from West Napolean onto Metairie Road all the way to the railroad tracks, we're the only parade to continue the rich tradition of the original Metairie parade route down Metairie Road.

Come out, bring the kids and the entire family, and may the luck of the Irish be with you.
