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

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.

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.
