Saint Patrick’s Day is the next big holiday that everyone is looking to celebrate. Winter won’t quite be in the rearview mirror yet, but since New Year’s Day there really hasn’t been much to celebrate. Let Tabak Law provide you with a guide to some of the best Saint Patrick’s Day 2023 events in Milwaukee. You won’t want to miss out.

When is Saint Patrick’s Day 2023?

Unlike some other holidays that follow certain rules which change the date on which they land each year, Saint Patrick’s Day always falls on the 17th. Luckily, this year it falls on a wonderful day for people to actually get out of their houses and enjoy themselves as March 17th in 2023 lands on a Friday. Let’s get into what events you can look forward to in the Milwaukee area.

When is the Milwaukee Saint Patrick’s Day Parade?

Though Saint Patrick’s Day is on a Friday this year, Milwaukee is holding its parade on a Saturday, more specifically on the 11th at noon, which is the Saturday prior to Saint Patrick’s Day.

The parade route will be on North MLK Drive and West Wisconsin Avenue and travel through the entertainment districts downtown before ending at Water Street and Highland Avenue. If you would like to participate, the parade is still seeking volunteers, sponsors, and more.
