The annual Delray Beach St. Patrick’s Day Parade, presented by the City of Delray Beach, is a tradition that began in 1968 with a local Irishmen and pub owner named Maury Power. Maury took what would later be regarded as a legendary stroll down Atlantic Avenue with his Shillelagh and a green pig. Over the years, the parade has grown into what it is today, the greatest St. Patrick's Day Parade in South Florida. The parade proudly features our local nonprofit organizations, businesses, schools, civic organizations, Veterans, police, firefighters, and EMS from all across the United States, and even as far away as Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Ireland, and Switzerland.
The annual Delray Beach St. Patrick’s Day Parade highlights the sense of community that the City of Delray Beach offers. It is loved and appreciated by the families and citizens of Delray Beach as well as thousands of their South Florida neighbors. This event is truly South Florida’s premiere hometown parade!
