The Northwest Irish Parade is a celebration of faith, family, and heritage on the Northwest side of Chicago. Now in our 11th year, the Northwest Side St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee has grown. The Committee was founded with the goal of bringing the Chicago’s Northwest side area a celebration of Irish involvement in the American experience.

Last year's parade was a tremendous success, as our friends and families have greatly expanded.

The Northwest Side Irish Parade Foundation is requesting donations to fund our 11th Annual St. Patrick’s Parade and celebration of Celtic & Gaelic customs and traditions. The marketing opportunities for the Northwest Side Parade Guide distributed to over 5000 people, all Parade-day participants, and the multiple events that lead up to the parade are very exciting. Our first ten years, NWSI had thousands in the community participate in the parade, a gallant endeavor by all. We’ll have more surprises for the Northwest Side this year and with a little luck maybe we’ll even beat last years’ attendance record.

Friends of the Northwest Side St. Patrick's Parade can support the event through a variety of fundraisers. Contributions ranging from a $5.00 raffle ticket to Parade Corporate Sponsorships through the $25,000.00 level help us underwrite the donations, cost of staging, promotional materials, and security. We are available to discuss sponsorship opportunities with you at your convenience. We look forward to hearingfrom you and hope that you can support this great event and local charities fund raiser.
