We created this web site so you can obtain all the information you need, including the Application to march in the Parade. The Irish Community can keep informed about the cultural events that are happening in Dutchess County by visiting this page regularly and accessing the links provided on it.

The St. Patrick’s Parade Committee was formed in the fall of 1995 by several members of the community and the Kevin Barry Irish Club. They gathered together to discuss having a St. Patrick’s Parade for Dutchess County residents. From this inspired group, a committee was formed and the fund raising began. Yes, it does cost money to run a Parade. All Marching Bands must be paid for and any transportation provided comes at a cost as well. We are now exempt from Federal Income Tax under Section 501C3 of the IRS code and therefore all contributions to the Parade Committee are deductible under Section 170 of the tax code. We are actively seeking Corporate Sponsors at this time so that we can continue to grow. Please contact Jack Fedigan at 845-297-1500 for further information on becoming a Corporate Sponsor.

We also issue a Parade Journal every year, which solicits ads to support the operational cost of the Parade. A Journal Ad Application is also provided on this site. For participants in the parade, registration ends February 7, 2010.

The Parade Journal Chairman is

In the Fall of 1995, several members of the community and the Kevin Barry Irish Club gathered together to discuss the idea of a Dutchess County St. Patrick’s Parade. This idea became a fact when, on March 9, 1996, with the help and blessing of St. Mary’s Parish and the Wappingers Falls Village Board, the first Dutchess County St. Patrick’s Parade stepped off at 1:00 pm from St. Mary’s parking lot in Wappingers Falls.  Now entering our twelfth year the Parade has grown into the very enjoyable and dignified event that attracts thousands of participants and spectators from near and far.  This year the parade is in its 12th  year and will be held Saturday, March 3 in the Village of Wappingers Falls.
