Address: Jussi Björlings allé 5, Stockholm, Sweden

The largest St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Scandinavia takes place in Stockholm on Saturday 16th March 2019 at Kungsträdgården between 11:00 and 14:30.

St Patrick’s Day is Ireland’s National Day and it has been celebrated with a parade in Stockholm since 2005. Each year it grows in size and impact. This year the parade-goers will gather at Kungsträdgården where there will be something of interest to everyone in the family:  Irish Wolfhounds, Connemara ponies, Irish Wheaten Terriers, pipers and drummers, while traditional Irish artists will entertain with music and song. There will be face-painting for the children and supporting businesses will be on hand with food and light refreshments for sale.

A parade will then wind through the streets of Stockholm with special guests, The Irish UN Veterans Association Pipe Band, coming from Ireland along with the Stockholm Pipe Band playing pipe music for all of Stockholm to hear and enjoy.

Following the parade, the day’s cultural activities will be finished off with some more music and a little Irish dancing, back at Kungsträdgården.

The event is organised by The Swedish Irish Society, which has done so since its inception.
