About the St. Patrick’s Day Parade:
This isn’t the biggest or the oldest St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the country, but it is a very popular Event in San Francisco that attendees of all ages enjoy. In addition to the parade, which begins at 11:30 a.m., the day’s fun also includes a festival which runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

More than 5,000 people participate in the parade including marching bands and others who showcase Irish culture. People line the street to get a great view of the parade before heading back to the festival. All of this takes place in Civic Center Plaza.

The festival portion of the San Francisco Event includes live entertainment, arts and crafts vendors, food trucks, and much more. Irish heritage and culture will be celebrated throughout the day at the St. Patricks’ Day Parade and Festival.
