St Patrick’s Day Parade and parking in Birmingham city centre


Dancing, music and fun!   It’s all a part of Birmingham’s St Patrick’s Day Parade which this year takes place on Sunday 15 March 2020.  The Parade began in 1952 and this long-standing tradition will this year be paying tribute to the Irish workers who played such a large part in bringing Birmingham back to its feet following the War.

The Parade will weave its way through the historic Digbeth High Street running from Camp Hill to Bullring. Colourful floats, marching bands and dancing representing a myriad of cultures will reflect and celebrate the diversity of Birmingham.

The Parade begins at 12.00 midday and continues until 2.00pm, with thousands lining the route to watch and be a part of this amazing spectacle.

Local businesses, pubs and venues will be supporting and joining in the fun on the day
