Salt Lake City St. Patrick’s Day Parade

2014 Salt Lake City St. Patrick’s Day Parade

When

The parade begins promptly at 10:00 a.m. on the morning of Saturday, March 15.

Parade Route

Through the Gateway in downtown Salt Lake City. Parade units line up at 400 West and 200 North, queuing up northward. Folks line the streets starting at 200 North, although the best viewing is in the Gateway. The parade units will proceed south on 400 West, west on 50 North, then take a jog down Rio Grande Street through the Gateway. I’m told the viewing stand will be located right around 100 South on the west side of the street, but don’t quote me on that!

Rinceoiri Don Spraoi will be entry #21.
