Important St Patrick’s Day Parade Information
March 12th, 2020
Dear Saint Paul,
Today, representatives of our association met with various city officials representing Ramsey County Department of Health, MN Department of Health, The St. Paul Mayor’s Office, and other local business owners and event planners. After carefully monitoring the situation throughout the week regarding COVID-19 and working with these officials, we have made the heartbreaking decision to cancel the 2020 St. Patrick’s Day Parade of St. Paul. We take the health and safety of our members, volunteers, participants, spectators, and community very seriously. This would have been our 54th year celebrating, and we did not make this decision lightly.
The St. Patrick’s Association of St. Paul is in alignment with the guidance being provided by the city and health department officials. They are strongly recommending all gatherings greater than 250 people be cancelled or postponed, along with encouraging the public to follow social distancing best practices. We have trust in our Health Department and their recommendations. For more information, visit MN Department of Health website and Ramsey County Department of Health website.
Please check our website throughout the year for more events. We celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and Irish heritage all year long.
