Event Hours: 10:00am - 5:00pm

More Parade Details:

The parade is a FREE event that is open to all ages, beginning at 10:00am and beloved by the entire community. This event has been held in the historic district of downtown Fort Collins for two decades. Volunteers from the community help with making sure the parade comes together, including being marshals for the parade route, judges, grand marshals, and more. The crowd of thousands will line the streets of the parade route, cheer on their friends and favorite entries, and enjoy the atmosphere. The entries are required to represent the St. Patrick’s Day theme and will be judged by a community panel to determine who wins 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards.


Old Town Irish Party

After the parade, the Downtown Fort Collins Business Association will offer live music and a “green beer garden” in Old Town Square at the Old Town Irish Party. There will be free admission to this portion as well and is open to all starting at 11:00am. Check back soon for 2018 entertainment!



The Lucky Joe’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is produced by the Downtown Fort Collins Business Association. For any further questions, please contact the DBA office at (970) 484-6500.
