Proposed changes to the parade route from the city have been in the news of late and the TOPS Rochester St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee is fully engaged in that conversation.

Our goal is to move through any evolution in a seamless manner out of respect for our patrons and participants.

The parade is an important celebration and a rich cultural enhancement to the Rochester community.  

We'll keep you posted on the latest developments and look forward to seeing you on March 14, 2015!


Thank you - The TOPS Rochester St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee
