If you are a wee bit Irish, get excited about four-leaf clovers or are just looking for entertainment online, check out the 38th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Irish Faire delivered virtually.

Because of the COVD-19 pandemic, the classic parade in Phoenix will shift to an online format from noon to 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 13. The telethon-type party is possible because of collaboration with the Irish Cultural Center and McClelland Library. Irish bands will perform live and there also will be interviews with area celebrities and community members. This year’s Arizona Colleen, from the Arizona Colleen Program, a heritage pageant, will be the host for the virtual event.

It is free to watch the parade and faire. You can support local, long-time faire vendors through the online booths. To learn more, visit https://stpatricksdayphoenix.org.
