The Greater New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade is Connecticut’s largest single day spectator event attracting more than 325,000 people to the streets New Haven each year. The Parade is a longstanding tradition in the New Haven community, and the members of the Greater New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee volunteer to ensure the tradition continues.
You may not be aware that the all-volunteer committee which plans the parade is also responsible for raising funds to put on the Parade.
Life, and the economy, has changed dramatically since the inception of the Parade, and although the City of New Haven helps defray the expense of putting on the Parade, the Greater New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee volunteers year round to raise the funds to keep the Parade an ongoing event. Funds are raised through $2.00 Parade button sales, fundraisers held at the Irish clubs of Greater New Haven and local restaurants and bars, corporate sponsorship, and through the generous support of individuals like you.
There are several other ways to support the Parade. Links are provided below and to the right.
