2010 Savannah Georgia Saint Patrick's Day Parade Parade

Wednesday, March 17, 2010 at 10:15

This year's Parade, the 185th edition, will take place on Wednesday, March 17th. In honor of St. Patrick's dedication to Christianity, we will start the day with the celebration of Mass at the beautiful Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. The Parade will step off at 10:15 am. It is expected that over 400,000 people will visit Savannah to help celebrate the second largest St. Patrick's Day Parade in the United States.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When is the parade in 2010?
A: The parade will be on Wednesday, March 17 in downtown Savannah beginning at 10:15 a.m. Most visitors will arrive on the Thursday or Friday prior to the parade day for the partying on River Street and other downtown locations and will leave once the Wednesday parade is over. All of the sanctioned, family events are held prior to the parade. The city is quite congested during that period. As many as 400,000 visitors arrive to this city adding to the nearly 200,000 people who live here.

Q: How do I get a hotel?
A: Some hotels begin taking reservations for the following year immediately after that year's celebration. Some, however, wait until the fall to accept reservations. Last year, most of Savannah's rooms were booked as of March 1, 2010. Hotels in the downtown area usually go first, followed by the southside of Savannah, and then surrounding areas.
Visitors planning to make the trip to Savannah can get more information by contacting the Savannah Area Convention and Visitors Bureau at 1-877-SAVANNAH. Visitors may also use SavannahNOW's convenient Yellow Pages tool to get phone numbers of area hotels and other businesses. To use the Yellow Pages, see our search engine on the left side of this and every St. Patrick's page.

Q: Will there be any changes to the celebration in 2010?
A: It's too early to tell, but please bookmark our St. Patrick's Day web site, and return here for the latest information.

Q: How do I get more information about the parade? What if I want to try to get an entry in the parade or be a vendor?
A: For parade entries, the St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee's office can give you that information. Contact them in writing at P.O. Box 9224, Savannah, Ga., 31411. or call (912) 233-4804. Previous parade participants should receive applications in the mail by December. All vendor information should be directed to the City of Savannah.

Q: Tell me more about Savannah
A: We have loads of information about Savannah, including virtual tours of our historic downtown, as well as phone numbers for hotels and dining and drinking establishments. Savannah is one of the most beautiful cities in the country, and is a big tourist destination because of its historic district, lush flowers and trees, and Southern charm.

Q: What's the weather like in March?
A: It all depends. Usually, March and April are among the most beautiful months of the year in Savannah. Temperatures may be in the 70s, sunny, with flowers in bloom. But, depending on whether a cold or warm front moves through the area, it can be hot and humid, as high as 90 degrees, or cold and rainy, perhaps in the 50s.

Q: What do I need to know about parking on the parade route? When do I have to move my car, when will parking there resume? What other traffic stuff do I need to know?
A: You can find that information on this web site as the 2010 event draws near.

Q: If I drive my car to Savannah on the day of the parade where will I park and what other roads will be closed that day? Also is it safe to bring someone in a wheelchair for the parade?
A: We'll also have that information. Typically though, driving downtown during the parade is a hassle. Your best bet is to arrive early or take a bus or cab.

Q: Do the Savannah parade and drinking scene in any way compare to the New Orleans Mardi Gras? Also are there displays of public nudity, as there are on Bourbon Street?
A: Some have said the festivities surrounding the St. Patrick's Day celebrations in Savannah are reminiscent of Mardi Gras. However, Savannah hosts only one parade, and displays of public nudity will get you arrested.

Q: What are the regulations concerning alcohol in Savannah on St. Patrick's Day?
A: Read the Savannah Police Department

Q: What does "Erin Go Bragh" mean?
A: Ireland Forever.
