The Chicago St. Patrick's Day Parade

The history of St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago goes back more than 175 years. Now a longstanding tradition, Chicago’s Irish parade was first held in 1843 and became an official city event in the 1950s. The dyeing of the Chicago River was added in 1962, quickly becoming one of Chicago’s most famous events.

The Parade planning committee will be releasing information in the coming months outlining Itinerary, cost, fundraisers, etc. in the coming months.  Check back frequently and watch for emails and text messages providing updates.

BRBBA will be coordinating with Bob Rogers travel to help facilitate this trip.  Our travel consultant will be hosting a Kick-Off meeting this summer to answer some specifics about the trip.
