The St. Patrick’s Day Parade

2018’s St Patrick’s Day Parade attracted approximately 30,000 onlookers into Brisbane’s CBD to watch the event. 2019’s parade will take place along the same route starting and ending outside the Botanic Gardens on Alice Street (See map). The event attracts many spectators with plans to improve the parade via an increase in the quality and quantity of floats and vibrant visual displays participating. We look forward to seeing you there!

2019 Parade Route – Saturday March 16th 10:30am – 11:30am
