History & Mission
Our mission is to celebrate the contributions of those who trace their ancestry to Ireland.
We celebrate Irish Americans who have enriched our city with their faith, values and hard work.
The White Plains St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee began this venture in 1997 with its first parade that marched down Mamaroneck Avenue to the steps of City Hall in 1998. Since then we have been marching every year, with the exception of 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid 19 Pandemic. Each year we honor deserving honorees, who trace their ancestry back to Ireland. We are grateful for the overwhelming parade support we receive each year from our parade marchers and spectators. We strive to make the parade bigger and better each year. This is possible through the generosity of our loyal Parade Sponsors and the assistance of the City of White Plains.
We look forward to our 25th Anniversary Celebration in 2024!
