Sound Shore St. Patrick’s Day Parade Returns

After a two-year absence due to the pandemic, the Sound Shore St. Patrick’s Day Parade is back in business. This year’s parade will take place on Sunday, March 20th, 2022, in Mamaroneck. Hundreds of musicians, Irish dancers, scout troops, firemen, politicians, school groups, and other community organizations are expected to march down Mamaroneck Avenue beginning at 1:30 pm. The parade route begins at Mamaroneck Avenue School and ends at Harbor Island Park off Boston Post Road. 


New to this year’s event is its leadership by co-grand marshals, Kate Bialo and Joe Durney. Ms. Bialo and Dr. Durney were originally slated to serve separately as the 2020 and 2021 grand marshals, respectively. Given the unprecedented circumstances, the two decided to combine efforts for the parade’s return this year. 


The next fundraiser to finance the parades and scholarships is scheduled to take place on March 3rd. The Hearts and Shamrocks Cocktail Party is from 7 to 10 pm at Hampshire Country Club in Mamaroneck. In addition to music, Irish dancers and raffles, the highlight of the event will be Sash Presentation Ceremony. 


Tickets are $100 and can be purchased at


Community groups from Port Chester to Pelham are welcome to participate; if you are a member of an organization that is interested in marching in the parade, send an email to
