The Wee Folks of Washtenaw & Talman, founders of this great parade, along with the South Side Irish Parade Committee, would like to announce the 2024 South Side Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade has returned! Tradition Marches On! On Sunday, March 17th,  the parade will step off at noon from 103rd and Western Avenue in Chicago’s Beverly/Morgan Park neighborhood. A family-friendly event, the South Side Irish Parade began in 1979 and has grown to become the largest St.Patrick’s Day community-based parade outside of Dublin, Ireland.
