ANNUAL ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE
March 16, 2019 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
he Parade Route begins at Sixth & Main Streets in downtown North Little Rock, travels through the Argenta Arts District, crosses the Arkansas River via the Main Street Bridge, travels east on President Clinton Avenue through the River Market District, turns south on Sherman Street and ends at Third & Cumberland Streets in Little Rock. The three best viewing and performance areas for the Parade are the Argenta Arts District, the River Market District and Third Street near Dugan’s Pub.
“Dancing at the Crossroads” will take place on the grandstand following the Parade. This event will feature musical performances by marching pipe & drum bands and traditional Irish dance performances by the McCafferty Academy of Irish Dance and the O’Donovan School of Irish Dance.
The Parade is coordinated by the Irish Cultural Society of Arkansas (ICSA) as a fun, free family-oriented community service event for the residents of central Arkansas and is intended to celebrate cultural diversity in Arkansas. Founded in 1996, the Society, which is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, provides programs demonstrating aspects of the culture of Ireland for the education of Arkansans, many of whom have ancestors from one of the seven Celtic nations.
