ALBANY, NY – The City of Albany and St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee have announced that the 72nd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade will return as an in-person event after being virtual last year due to COVID-19. The parade will take place on Saturday, March 12, 2022, barring any mass-gathering prohibitions.    

Parade Day events will begin with the traditional Mass at Blessed Sacrament Church at 9:00AM. The Parade will step off at 2:00PM from the corner of Quail and Central Avenues and end at State and Green Streets.

“It will be refreshing to re-join our neighbors for the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade – an Albany tradition that is now in its 72nd year,” said Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan. “While we still remain cautious with regards to stopping the spread of COVID, I am looking forward to being able to enjoy this celebration and parade safely with others.” 

“It’s been a most interesting time since we last marched down the Avenue in 2019. We’re very excited to resume Albany’s traditional ‘Rite of Spring’ - the 72nd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade! Looking forward to a great day!” said Tim Carey, President of the United Irish Societies of the Capital Region.
