Overview

On Sunday, March 12, 2017, the 62nd Baltimore Saint Patrick Parade and the Shamrock 5K Race will draw tens of thousands of marchers, runners, and spectators to downtown. The Shamrock 5K Race kicks off at 1:15pm EDT at Charles and Franklin Streets. It will proceed south on Charles to Conway Street, east on Conway to Light Street, south on Light to Key Highway, east on Key to a turnaround point near Jackson Street, a return west on Key Highway to Light Street, north on Light to Pratt Street, east on Pratt to Market Place, and north on Market to the finish line between Pratt and Lombard Streets at Power Plant Live. The Parade will step off at 2:00pm EDT from the staging area by the Washington Monument, and will proceed south on Charles Street to Pratt Street, and then east on Pratt to Market Place. Parade Day road closures and parking restrictions will begin as early as 9:00am EDT on Sunday. Between 12:00 noon and 5:00pm, you should expect substantial traffic congestion and delays, which will not abate until after the conclusion of the Parade. The sooner you get downtown for the Parade, the lesser your chances of being stuck in traffic. Make a day of it by attending the Official Parade Mass at 10:45am EDT at the Baltimore Basilica (409 Cathedral Street, between Franklin and Mulberry Streets), and then proceeding from the Basilica to your viewing location. Before you head downtown, check the City's website, http://transportation.baltimorecity.gov/news/traffic-advisories, for the Parade Day traffic advisory and any updates! The Parade Committee wishes your and yours a SAFE and fun Parade Day!
