The 2020 Sioux Falls St. Patrick´s Day Parade is Saturday, March 14. Sioux Falls' annual St. Patrick's Day parade turns 41 this year. Activities are always held the Saturday before St. Patrick´s Day and officially kick off the event at 11: am with “The Painting of a Shamrock” in the middle of historic Phillips Avenue.

The parade will begin at 2 p.m. at 13th Street and Phillips Avenue. Sponsored by the St. Patrick´s Day Extravaganza Committee, with help from Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce, the annual parade was designed to be a "people´s parade" meaning anyone can participate as long as they´re wearing a button.

The St. Patrick´s Day Parade buttons cost $3 each. All proceeds are donated to the Special Olympics and other worthwhile children´s charities in the Sioux Falls area.

Be sure to visit the city’s namesake, Falls Park, while it’s lit green for the holiday! Falls Park Visitor Center will be open St. Patty’s Day weekend 10:00 am – 5:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday.

It's free to sign up to participate in the parade but advance registration is required. Registration must be completed online by March 9 at
