See you next year for the 53rd Annual Shamrock Club of Wisconsin St. Patrick’s Day Parade!

The 52nd Annual Shamrock Club of Wisconsin St. Patrick’s Day Parade took place on Saturday, March 10th, 2018. The parade stepped off at noon at 3rd and Wisconsin and finished at Water and Highland. An excited crowd cheered us on as we made our way through the streets of downtown Milwaukee.

Thanks to everyone who made this year’s parade possible – Shamrock Club of Wisconsin, the Westown Association, presenting sponsor Miller Lite and all our other parade sponsors, bands, Irish dance schools, and local Irish and Celtic community groups, and of course the dedicated team of volunteers who helped get everything organized.

Check out some great photos from the 2018 parade!

Congratulations to this years winners!
