Annapolis St. Patrick’s Parade and Festival

March 3 - March 5

About This Event

The Annapolis St. Patrick’s Parade weekend is growing again. We are now a three-day event starting with The 8th annual Hooley on Friday, March 3rd. A Hooley is day of festivities centered around dancing, singing, and general merriment in the traditional Irish fashion. This event will sell out fast. Tickets will go on sale shortly.

Shamrock the Dock is growing into a two-day festival on City Dock. Day one will be on Saturday March 4th from 1200 to 10PM. We are adding a 160×100 foot structure, huge stage, VIP areas and a massive General Admission to view an amazing lineup from around the country. We are expecting a few thousand attendees. Tickets are on sale and moving out.

The event that started it all is the Annapolis St. Patrick’s Parade on March 5th. This is the 10th anniversary of the parade that is easily the largest in the city and has become a destination/attraction in the Mid-Atlantic. The charm of Annapolis combined with a well-run, enthusiastic Irish parade makes for a great combination and draw. This parade routinely attracts over 20,000 people to the city for a glorious day welcoming Spring back!

Following and during the parade we will continue Shamrock the Dock with another amazing lineup featuring our very own Dublin5! This event is free and open to the public. We will still have VIP options but this is Naptown Events gift to the city.

This impressive weekend is only possible with the help of sponsors. I always say, we bring the people as has been proven year over year, you realize the value. So, let’s partner! Some of our options are listed below. We are more than happy to configure another option that might be up your alley.
