Saint Patrick’s Day Events

St Patrick’s Day Parade

The 50th Annual St Patrick’s Day parade sponsored by the Friends of St Patrick will take place on Friday the 17th at 12 noon on Kalakaua Ave in Waikiki. The parade route begins on Kalakaua fronting Fort DeRussy and ends at Kapiolani Park by the bandstand. The Parade this year will feature Dan Quinn, Pipe Major of the Celtic Pipes and Drums of Hawaii as the Friends of Saint Patrick’s Irishman of the Year. The event should conclude by 1:30pm

Thank yous are extended to our Parade sponsors; JJ Dolans, Murphy’s Bar & Grill, Anna O’Brien’s, Kelley O’Neil’s, O’Toole’s, the Irish Rose Saloon, Anheuser Busch of Hawaii, Killians Irish Red, Guinness, Pabst and Primo, Boston Beer Co., Dubliner, Tullamore Dew, Bushmills, Two Gingers, and Barefoot Wines.

The Parade will close Kalakaua Ave. from 11:30 until about 1:30 as the parade passes.

Interesting fact: Honolulu’s Saint Patrick’s Day Parade is the last parade on the planet each year as any events west of Hawaii are beyond the International Dateline.
