Downtown Community Partnership

Fargo-Moorhead St. Patrick’s Parade Postponed Until March 18th


In light of the weather forecast for tomorrow, the Downtown Community Partnership (DCP) will be postponing the 2023 St. Patrick’s Parade. The parade will now roll on March 18, 2023 at 11 a.m.

The DCP values the safety of our volunteers, parade participants, community attendees, and all the staff and crew that makes these events possible above all else. We owe a special thanks to our event permit holders, the City of Moorhead, the City of Fargo, Fargo PD, and MNDot, our volunteer groups, and parade participants for their flexibility and understanding. We would not be able to hold these large-scale events without their support and partnership.

The parade begins in Moorhead on Center Avenue before making its way across the bridge to NP Ave in Downtown Fargo. The route then turns north on Broadway and ends at 4th Avenue North.

The DCP has proudly hosted the FM St. Patrick’s Parade since 2019. The parade has historically attracted more than 10,000 attendees to enjoy festive entourages of bands, equestrians, Irish dancers, bagpipes, civic clubs, and multicultural groups. The DCP is committed to keeping the legacy of this wonderful community event thriving with insight and stories from original planning members.
