Get Ready for the Baltimore St. Patrick’s Day Parade and 5K!


One of the most iconic Baltimore events of the year is almost here! Returning Sunday, March 15, the Baltimore St. Patrick’s Day Parade and 5K celebrate Irish heritage and culture right here in Baltimore (the parade is celebrating 60 years this year!). The parade steps off at the Washington Monument and ends at the Inner Harbor, you can see the full map online if you want to scope out where to get your spot in the morning.

The parade will be preceded by the Shamrock 5K which kicks off at 1:15 p.m. so if you want to get in a few miles before watching the parade, get yourself registered and plan that perfect green running outfit! The route starts on Charles and Mulberry Streets, so plan your parking situation accordingly. Registration is $50 and can be done online. Make sure you can run it in 45 minutes because the parade starts right at 2 p.m. for some extra motivation!
