Participate in the Parade

St. Patrick's Day ParadeMany thanks to all parade participants in the 2017 St. Patrick’s Day Parade. It was clear we all enjoyed the new route that started and and ended at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens. We are now accepting nominations for the 2018 parade on Saturday 17th March 10:30am – 11:30am. It is very exciting to be able to celebrate on the actual date of St Patrick’s Day here in Brisbane. It doesn’t happen often.

For those interested in being part of the 2018 parade, please fill in the form below by February 28th 2018. Spaces are limited but we try our best to accommodate all who want to join in on the fun! We encourage all participants to be as creative and festive as possible – the bigger and brighter the better.

Please take note of the vehicle safety guidelines to be followed:

  • Please follow the marshals instructions closely.
  • Participants on the back of a truck or ute need to be enclosed with a railing above waste height. If the truck or ute does not have an adequate railing, participants need to sit. Participants are not allowed sit on the edge of a flat bed ute, they are to sit in the middle.
  • All minors are to be accompanied by an adult on a float but would prefer there were no minors for safety reasons.
  • No activities such as dancing or jumping about on the back of trucks or utes is allowed.
  • If your vehicle is deemed unfit or unsafe for the parade, you may be prevented from participating.
