Each year the City of Hollywood and The New Hibernians of Hollywood team up to host an annual, free celebration of “all things Irish.” This year’s parade and festival will take place at noon and end just before the sunsets over Hollywood with plenty of live entertainment throughout the day. For 2020, the 22nd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival in downtown Hollywood will take place on Sunday, March 15th.
UPDATE AS OF MARCH 10, 2020: In collaboration with the Hibernians of Hollywood & the Community Redevelopment Agency, the City of Hollywood has announced the St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival in downtown Hollywood has officially been cancelled. The decision to cancel the event was made out of an abundance of caution due to the COVID-19 outbreak as well as the state of emergency declared by Broward County today.
Traditional Float Parade
The parade begins at 1 p.m. at Harrison Street and 21st Avenue. The parade will wind its way through downtown Hollywood, heading northbound to Hollywood Boulevard, east to Young Circle and south to westbound Harrison Street returning to the starting point. The parade will feature an array of floats, pipe and drums, marching bands and local business and organizations along with the famous New York Police Department Emerald Society Pipes and Drums. Wear your green and be prepared for an exciting day of festivities.
An outdoor stage will be erected at the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and 19th Avenue adjacent to the location formerly occupied by Whiskey Tango.
