NEW YORK - Feb. 13, 2024 - PRLog -- The NYC St Patrick's Day Parade does not invite any group to march in the parade. Groups seeking approval to participate in the NYC St Patrick's Day Parade must first fill out a form with their intent to affiliate. The process to affiliate/ seek approval is open early Fall with a deadline of December 15, 2023.

The NYC St Patrick's Parade office received a letter requesting that the An Garda Síochána be included in the line of march in late January. This was well past the December 15 application deadline.

"The Parade Committee are working to include uniformed Guardi in a designated place in the line of march "2024 NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade", explained Chairman of the NYC St. Patrick's Parade Sean Lane.

The New York City Saint Patrick's Day Parade™  is the oldest and largest St. Patrick's Day Parade in the world. The first parade was held on March 17, 1762 — fourteen years before the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

The parade is held annually on March 17th at precisely 11:00 AM in honor of St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland and of the Archdiocese of New York. The parade route goes up Fifth Avenue beginning at East 44th Street and ending at East 79th Street. Approximately 150,000 people march in the parade which draws about 2 million spectators.

From its earliest days, right up to the present, the New York City Saint Patrick's Day Parade™ has been run entirely by volunteers, many of whom come from generations of families dedicated to the organization of the parade. It takes months of preparation and countless hours to run the world's oldest and largest parade. We could not do it without the commitment of these great women and men.

The NYC Saint Patrick's Day Parade™  is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Visit for information and the history of the Parade.

*When March 17 falls on a Sunday, the Parade is held on March 16 for religious observances.
