Gaithersburg’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade Returns March 14
March 6, 2020
St. Paddy’s Day extends beyond a single 24-hour period in Gaithersburg! The actual holiday may not be until March 17th, but the local St. Patrick’s Day Parade will kick off the festivities a few days early on Saturday, March 14th. Get dressed up in your most vibrant green garb and head out to enjoy the fanfare.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the very first St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Gaithersburg, so you can expect it to be a blowout. The parade starts at Rio Boulevard and Grand Corner Avenue, a stream of performers, floats, and community organizations. They’ll march along the Rio Lakefront starting at 10 a.m. Find a good spot to catch the action on the sidewalk along Boardwalk Place and start celebrating St. Paddy’s day next weekend!
