About Us

Welcome to the Naples St. Patrick Foundation website! We invite you to attend and support Naples’ premier winter event The 38th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, to be held on Saturday, March 15th, 2014 in Downtown Naples

Thirty-eight years ago a group of fun-loving Neapolitans got together and decided to have a parade to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Through the hard work of many volunteers and the generous support of patrons like you, the Parade has prospered in the decades since. The Parade is now the largest privately-funded Parade in the state. It draws over 40,000 people to downtown Naples each year to celebrate Irish heritage and Irish culture in America.
