Taking place on March 17 every year, St Patrick’s Day is a celebration of Irish heritageculture and religion, on the traditional death date of Saint Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland.

Celebrations take place all over the world, and people in Liverpool love take festivities to the next level with a huge parade and event in Irish pubs and bars across the city.

Founded in 2015, The Liverpool St Patrick’s Day Parade will once again take to the streets in 2024, with a march on St Patrick's Day and a 'pre-St Patrick's Day parade' the weekend before. Organisers say this year will see the 'biggest' parade Liverpool has seen in years. Here is everything you need to know.
