TOPS Rochester's St. Patrick's Day Parade and Celtic Family Faire
It's an annual tradition in Rochester -- the best of both worlds, the St. Patrick's Day Parade and the Celtic Family Faire. The Faire is held warmly indoors at the Rochester Riverside Hotel at 120 East Main Street.
The Parade starts at 12:30 and runs from East Ave at Alexander Street down Main Street, ending at Plymouth Avenue.
Where can I park for the Parade?
Ample parking garages are located around the city, South Clinton, Main St, East Ave, and Woodbury, to name a few. There is also street parking available on most side streets. PLEASE NOTE: The RPD typically blocks all traffic along the Parade route at about 11:30am.
Get ready for plenty of shenanigans as Rochester get its Irish on!
The annual Celtic Family Faire will also be taking place at the hotel from 11am to 4pm. It’s an indoor, all-weather, family festival featuring Irish musicians, dancers, games and fun for the wee ones!
