St Patrick's Birmingham

Alcester Street, BIRMINGHAM, West Midlands, B12 0PH
St Patrick's Birmingham



CANCELLED - Please see statement here

Join tens of thousands of onlookers lining up Digbeth High Street to watch the St Patrick's Day Parade. Starting at camp hill at 12 noon, our ever growing parade lasts almost two hours and is a showcase of the diverse cultures and communities of Birmingham.

From Irish dancers to Caribbean dancers, Welsh dragons to Chinese dragons, the St Patrick's Festival has always been a vibrant celebration of multiculturalism. At 12 Noon a confetti blast signals the start of the St Patrick's Parade, and another fun filled festival celebrating the culture and diversity of Birmingham.

Birmingham’s St Patrick's Parade goes back to 1952 and was the first in Britain. It was originally started by the community to reinforce their identity and ensure their strong links with the home country. The parade has taken place in Digbeth since 1996 and has since grown enormously in stature. 2017 promises to be better than ever. Whilst being unmistakably Irish at the core, the Parade increasingly mirrors the fantastic diversity and multicultural nature of Birmingham, as we welcome guest appearances from other communities. What could be more Irish than extending hospitality?
