Ireland On Parade - Multi-Day St. Patrick's Day Celebration
Gaelic Park is proud to host our Ireland on Parade, now a multi-generational tradition that begin at Gaelic Park in 1992. Also known as, “Irish Week”, Ireland on Parade is part of the 8-day celebration at Gaelic Park in honor of Ireland’s patron saint, Patrick. Admission is free.
In addition to the wonderful dance school performances each night, Ireland on Parade will include exhibitions of both Ceili and Set dancing. Music is provided by The Irish Musicians Association, an organizations which consists of local artists who are dedicated to the perpetuation of traditional Irish music.
Doors open each evening at 5:30pm with the dancers most every night. See the schedule for times and dates for each of the schools.
And of course, what's St. Patrick's Day without a few of those parades!
Join us at either the Downtown Chicago or Southside Parades.
