The Annual Alltech Lexington St. Patrick’s Parade and Irish Festival is scheduled for Saturday, March 11, 2023.
The celebration begins at 10:45 a.m. with the “Blessing of the Keg” at the Alltech tents at the Robert F. Stephens Courthouse, which kicks off a free festival with entertainment from Irish dancers and musicians, as well as food and craft vendors from throughout the region. The parade begins at 1 p.m. on Main Street.
Kick off the running season at the 17th Annual Shamrock Shuffle 3K, presented by Stantec! Take part in this St. Patrick’s Day tradition by joining the in-person race at Fasig-Tipton on March 18, 2023 or by completing a virtual race from anywhere, March 11 – March 31, 2023. Like always, we shuffle for shelter! Net proceeds benefit Lexington Habitat for Humanity.
The St. Patrick’s parade is the longest-running citywide civic event in Lexington. We look forward to continuing the tradition and welcoming people to downtown Lexington this year. The parade kicks off at 1 pm.
The Lexington Division of Parks and Recreation produces the annual parade and festival with community support from local businesses and cultural organizations.
