2021 Parade Application with Release of Liability

Port City Irish Productions
Downtown Wilmington’s 21st Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade Saturday, September 18, 2021

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is an Irish-American celebration by the Cape Fear community. We ask that your entry not caricature or debase the Irish people or culture and be respectful of our committee’s goal of providing a fun event for all of the attending this year’s parade. Your organization should have a banner or its equivalent for clear identification of your unit. This will assist in identifying your organization as it passes the reviewing stand. The parade Master of Ceremonies will use the application information to recognize and describe your group.

In order to cover the cost of the parade there is a $25.00 registration fee for non- band, non-float, non-military, and non-municipal participants. The parade steps- off at 11:00 AM. All participating units should arrive at the CFCC Schwartz Center parking lot by 9:30 AM for placement in the parade.
