About Us

 MARCH 11, 2018

The Northwest Irish Parade is a celebration of  faith, family, and heritage on the Northwest side of Chicago. Now in our  15th year, the Northwest Side St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee has  grown. The Committee was founded with the goal of bringing the Chicago’s  Northwest side area a celebration of Irish involvement in the American  experience.

Last years parade was a tremendous success, as our friends and families have greatly expanded.

The  marketing opportunities for the Northwest Side Parade Guide distributed  to over 50,000 people, all Parade-day participants, and the multiple  events that lead up to the parade are very exciting. Our first eleven  years, NWSI had thousands in the community participate in the parade, a  gallant endeavor by all. We’ll have more surprises for the Northwest  Side this year and with a little luck maybe we’ll even beat last years’  attendance record.

Friends of the Northwest Side St. Patrick's  Parade can support the event through a variety of fundraisers.  Contributions ranging from a $5.00 raffle ticket to Parade Corporate  Sponsorship's through the $25,000.00 level help us underwrite the  donations, cost of staging, promotional materials, and security. We are  available to discuss sponsorship opportunities with you at your  convenience. We look forward to hearing from you and hope that you can  support this great event and local charities fund raiser.

Northwest  Side Irish Parade Foundation is dedicated to the preservation,  furtherance and promotion of American Irish Celtic & Gaelic  traditions and histories, which benefits the general public and our  local communities. We welcome all ethnic friends and family to join the  Irish in celebration; it is after all a celebration of friends and  families here on the Northwest Side of Chicago. For everyone that is  Irish and Irish at heart!

The St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee  is an all-volunteer organization whose sole purpose is to promote our  Irish Heritage, through organizing and managing the parade. All proceeds  go directly to the parade.  We have raised funds and awareness for many  charitable communities over the past eleven years. Misericordia,  Muscular Dystrophy and Helmets to Hardhats are just a few.

Lastly,  and most importantly, I would like to thank the families and businesses  that have supported the celebration over the past eleven years. Our  festivities would not be possible without your support. We assist to  local charities and look to get involved in more worthy causes in the  near future. We at the Northwest Side Irish are always on the look out  for a good deed to do. So please contact us with any suggestions you  might have. Finally, let's all remember; let's make this Northwest  Side's St. Patrick's Day Parade FUN!

For everyone, the Irish and the Irish at heart...
