MANCHESTER, NH — The 2019 St. Patrick’s Day Parade will take place March 31 on Elm Street, starting at noon, brought to you by the Manchester St. Patrick’s Parade Committee and Ancient Order of Hibernians.

Although there is some rain in the forecast, the parade is a rain-or-shine-event. Visit the Facebook Parade Event page for updates.

Master of Ceremonies John Clayton will be announcing from the review stand this year along with last year’s Grand Marshall, Sheila O’Neil Smith.

This year John and Marilyn Cashin have been named as Grand Marshals — it’s only the second time in the history of the parade that there have been co-Grand Marshals.

The parade starts on at noon on Elm Street at the intersection with Salmon and continues south along Elm Street.

The 9th annual Citizens Bank Shamrock Shuffle, a 2-mile Irish-themed run/walk, will precede the parade at 11:15 a.m. on Sunday March 31.
