St. Patrick's Day Parade

  • St. Patrick's Day Parade

It’s easy being green in Boone, especially on St. Patrick’s Day! Cead Hile Failte – that means 100,000 welcomes in Gaelic!

The town of Boone and the Jones House Cultural Center are proud to announce that on Saturday, March 16, 2018, they will host the inaugural St. Patrick’s Day Parade. All members of the community are invited to help turn Boone green for the day!

Find a spot on King Street and enjoy the fun as Boone turns Irish for the day.

The parade will travel from the Watauga Human Services Complex (132 Poplar Grove Connector) to Legends at Appalachian State University
