This year the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival will honor the 100th year of the 1916 Irish Rising and the men and women who supported this centennial event. In recent years the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival has regained its status as one of the biggest parades in our State. Featured groups from throughout the Bay Area’s Irish community include schools, youth organizations, labor unions, cultural groups, as well as the San Francisco Fire and Police Departments. In addition, many of our local political leaders proudly march up Market Street.
