Escape & Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Sturgeon Bay

St. Patrick’s Day Parade presented with Kitty O’Reillys & Door County Medical Center - It is with a heavy heart that Destination Sturgeon Bay has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2021 St. Patrick’s Day Parade to March 12, 2022. After consulting with Door County Public Health and the City of Sturgeon Bay, all parties felt it was in everyone’s best interest to postpone the event. While we know this is disappointing, we hope you can understand the steps we are taking to help keep our community safe. 

Ease your winter doldrums with a bit o’ Irish cheer at the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade in Sturgeon Bay!

Mark your calendar for March 12, 2022  and enjoy the festive parade and live entertainment offered at venues throughout the city. Stake out your spot for watching the St. Patrick’s Day parade.

Paraders begin at 11 a.m. from Sawyer Park on the west side, proceed west on Oak Street  to Madison Avenue. Once on Madison, the parade heads north  onto Maple Street over the Maple/Oregon Street Bridge to Third Avenue.  At Martin Park, paraders turn onto Third Avenue and march to the finish at Jefferson Street.
