With indications of a gradual return to normalcy, the Committee has commenced planning for the parade on September 18, and it is viewed as an opportunity for the Cape Fear region to come together in downtown Wilmington and celebrate the wearin’ o’ the green!

After the Parade ends, the Downtown Wilmington Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day Festival commences with music, food, and activities for the entire family.  The Committee annually organizes the Parade, which has been described as one of the Top 10 St. Patrick’s Day Parades in small cities in America.
