The Manchester Saint Patrick’s Parade Committee has cancelled the Parade.
The Manchester St. Patrick’s Parade Committee has come to the difficult decision that, due to the information provided by the CDC regarding COVID-19, the Manchester St. Patrick’s Parade, scheduled for March 29, 2020 will be canceled.
We are canceling out of the concern for the safety, health and well-being of our downtown partners, spectators, fans and participants.
We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their continued support. For a list of sponsors, please click on the Sponsor tab at the top of the website home page.
Please refer back to our webpage for more information and updates for what is next as we explore ways to aid our affected downtown sponsors.
We are hopeful that each and every one of you will take measures to protect yourselves and your loved ones by adhering to the following:
What should I do to prepare/respond as an individual?
Practicing a few common-sense public health steps can help stop the spread of COVID-19.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use a 60% or greater alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Clean and disinfect frequently used objects and surfaces at home and in the workplace.
- Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick and avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Temporarily replace the handshake, hugs, and physical contact with a friendly wave.

You can be a part of this celebration by contributing financially to help sponsor the parade or by helping to provide quality entertainment for the Parade! Of course we are always looking for volunteers to help with Parade planning or on Parade day to help bring this $50,000, privately funded, gigantic parade down Elm street in Manchester! There is a sponsor contact form at the top of the page under the “Sponsors” tab.
We are soliciting your help to make this the best Parade ever! We are also planning events for the coming months leading up to the Parade to bring attention to this extravaganza and help with a little fundraising. Hopefully you can help make these little events a success. There will be more information here on the website and on our Facebook page “Manchester St. Patrick’s Parade”.
