Statement of the Philadelphia St. Patrick's Day Observance Association 

Issued January 5, 2021

  After heartfelt consideration, the St. Patrick's Day Observance Association  has made the decision to cancel the 2020 and 2021 Philadelphia Saint Patrick's Day Parade and all events related to the parade. This decision was made with significant consideration to the challenges and concerns that we continue to face with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 Despite our love and excitement for our Parade and celebration of St. Patrick, the safety and well-being of organizers, volunteers, participants, and spectators is our number one priority at this time.

 We will continue with great enthusiasm to plan the 250th Saint Patrick's Day Parade for March 13, 2022 where we will celebrate Saint Patrick, our Grand Marshal Michael J. Bradley, Jr., and the distinguished members of our Ring of Honor.  Our Parade Theme is 250 Years of Faith, Family, Friendship and Heritage.

 Thank you for your understanding, and have a Happy, Healthy and Holy New Year!
