2019 Fargo-Moorhead St. Patricks Parade
Mayor Tim Mahoney serves as Grand Marshal
The Downtown Community Partnership (DCP) and the Cities of Fargo and Moorhead are proud to host the 23rd annual St. Patrick's Parade! This years parade will be expanded to include the city of Moorhead and continue into Downtown Fargo.
The Parade, which was in jeopardy of being cancelled, was able to carry on into its 23rd year thanks to Presenting Sponsor Jefferson Lines and Supporting Sponsor Midwest Radio of Fargo-Moorhead along with a host of other community contributors. The parade could not have gone on without the outpouring of community support!
Typically, the parade attracts more than 10,000 attendees with a festive entourage of bands, equestrians, Irish dancers, bagpipes, civic clubs and multicultural groups. A family-friendly event, this celebration unites the community and celebrates an unofficial beginning of spring
with some Irish flare. Those interested in having a float in the parade can register their float,
vehicle or walking group by visiting the event page on DowntownFargo.com .
The DCP was very pleased Mayor Mahoney accepted their offer to be the first Grand Marshal the St. Patrick’s Parade has had. Mayor Mahoney enjoys meeting residents and learning more about the issues that will affect the City's future. “I’m so excited for this event. This truly is an annual tradition and I can’t wait to showcase my Irish heritage on March 16!” Mahoney said.
