Welcome to the official website of the St Patrick’s Day Parade Wexford 2018. Thousands joined us for the town’s centenary parade in 2017, when Wexford was transformed by the colour, pageantry and magic which are associated with St. Patrick’s Day festivities.
The St. Patrick’s Day Parade committee wishes to acknowledge the support of our various sponsors within the local business community, in addition to the financial assistance which has been provided by Wexford Credit Union, Wexford District Council and Wexford County Council.

If you wish to advertise on this website or make a donation to the parade, please #contact the secretary of the Committee. Contact details can be found here.
