The big parade is on Sunday, but true Buffalonians know the real parade is on Saturday. This celebration winds through the streets of the historic Buffalo River Community where many of the original Irish immigrants lived. This year’s parade will feature over 100 participants including marching bands, floats, social clubs, classic cars, Irish dancers, fire and police departments and more!

Buffalo’s official St. Patrick’s Day parade marches down Delaware Avenue on Sunday afternoon before the holiday. The United Irish American Association organizes this event to honor St. Patrick and to recognize Irish contributions to the local community.
Sunday, March 15, 2020 from Noon – 3:30 PM
If you aren’t willing to brave Buffalo’s unpredictable March weather, consider viewing the parade from the comfort and warmth of the awarding-winning Mansion on Delaware. EPIC’s event includes cocktails, hors d’ oeuvres, basket raffles, a silent auction and live entertainment. Tickets start at $100 per person, and all proceeds benefit EPIC – Every Person Influences Children.
For a more sophisticated St. Patrick’s Day, Buffalo’s Irish Classical Theatre Company features Irish plays, modern works and international classics. This March, the theatre will present The Onion Game. This black comedy was the winner of the 2013 BBC Writersroom open submissions competition in London. Evening shows and matinees run from March 6th to March 29th.
Would you prefer to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day with a hearty Irish meal? Downtown Buffalo offers a variety of Irish restaurants including Adolf’s Old First Ward Tavern, The Blackthorn Restaurant & Pub, and D’Arcy McGee’s Irish Pub. For those in the suburbs, The Irishman has locations in both Williamsville and East Aurora.
