Parade History



Parade Committee Sign.

Ireland County Flags.

Welcome to the official web site of the Union County New Jersey Saint Patrick's Day Parade.

Our Parade Committee was founded in 1995 by a group of Irish American and Fraternal  organizations. Our first parade stepped off in 1997 in the Township of Union, and through the cooperative efforts of the Committee, the Township, the County of Union, our corporate Sponsors, advertisers, and public participation, it has grown to be the largest St. Patrick's Day Parade in New Jersey.

We pride ourselves in putting a family oriented parade on the street, with special attention paid to the young (and young at heart). Opening ceremonies feature Irish Step Dancers, Bagpipers, and entertainment for the children including clowns and face painters.

If you are interested in becoming involved in our endeavors, simply click on the "Contacts" link for a full list of officers and committee members as well as how to contact them.

The Parade Committee sponsors fund raisers throughout the year so be sure to check for dates and information on the "Events" page.

In addition to the Parade Committee, many of our organizations will be hosting dances, picnics,  fund raisers, etc., so look for their dates as well on this site.
