We are getting a lot of questions about the weather. Right now, it looks like cold and dry, so please bundle up and dress for the weather. Come downtown early to park your car and put your chairs and blankets along Market Street to save your viewing spot, and then explore downtown and the many shops and eateries. Stay warm with some coffee, hot chocolate, soup or stew, etc. We’ll have pre-parade Irish dancing in four locations (three of them indoors).
Visit Downtown York, PA's website for shopping and dining information:
In the event of light rain or snow, the parade will go on. Due to the amount of advance planning that goes into the parade, and because many of our participants and volunteers have other commitments during the busy Saint Patrick’s Day season, it is not feasible to have an inclement weather date. The parade will go on as scheduled if there is light rain or snow. The parade would only be canceled in the event of severely inclement weather where there are serious safety concerns.
Thank you for your interest in the York Saint Patrick’s Day Parade!
