St. Patrick’s Day Weekend 2024

Marlee Wallace

What a lucky year to live downtown, there are so many events happening this weekend!

St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival

We host the Old Sacramento St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival every year and we’re excited to have so much going on this Saturday March 16th, 2024! Parade will kick off at 1PM.

As always, we encourage you to walk to Old Sac events through the K Street tunnel, Capitol, I Street, or the Sacramento River Bike Trail. Roads will be closed  for your safety during the parade and festival. If you do want to drive, we recommend parking in the garages to avoid the closures.

All roads in and out of Old Sac close at 9AM! They will not open again until 3PM. Parking in the garages is going to be your best option for flexible parking. The Old Sac Garage on I Street and Tower Bridge Garage on Capitol will be open all day and you can even reserve your parking now for 25% off.

There are three stages with performances, activations, and live music until 5PM.

Festival Schedule

The Parade and Festival is March 16th, you can participate in Leprechaun Hunt until March 18th, and you can experience the Taste of Ireland all month long where 11 bars, restaurants, and cafe’s will be offering Irish inspired food and beverage options.
