The 62nd Annual Newport, Rhode Island Saint Patrick's Day Parade will be held, rain, snow, or shine, on Saturday, March 17th 2018. It will begin promptly at 11:00am from Newport City Hall and will proceed to Carroll Avenue at Saint Augustin’s Church in the heart of the Fifth Ward. We are located right on the parade route. Come on in and view the parade right from inside or stop by after the parade and enjoy some of the bagpipers that stop in after the parade.
The parade this year is estimated to last 2 hours and will include Pipe Bands, Marching Bands, Fife & Drum Corps, Clown Units, reenactment units, and a host of local, state, and regional organizations including police and fire units, social/fraternal organizations, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Schools, and non-profits.
The Newport Saint Patrick's Day Parade is always held on the Saturday preceding March 17th (St. Patrick's Day), unless the 17th is a Saturday in which case it is held on that day.
