Saint Patrick's Day Parade 2020

Old Town Alexandria’s Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade is organized and paid for by The Ballyshaners; a volunteer organization committed to promoting and preserving Irish heritage and culture. The Ballyshaners are recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)3 charitable organization making your contributions TAX-DEDUCTIBLE. 

Our event costs approximately $50,000 per year. Showcasing our city, just across the Potomac River from Washington, DC, we feature at least four pipe bands, numerous Irish dance schools, the Notre Dame Alumni Band, and over 100 additional parade units. Thousands of spectators line King Street for Old Town’s largest annual family event.
