After a three year break because of Covid, the Madison's St. Patrick's Parade Committee is inviting you to participate in twentythird parade planned for Sunday, March 12, 2023. Coming at the tail end of winter, the day marks the official start of the warmth we all long for in spring.

The celebration of St. Patrick marks a celebration of the art, history, culture and tradition of the Irish people and of all immigrants who came to America in the dream of freedom and the pursuit of individual freedom and liberty. The Dane County Shamrock Club and Celtic Cultural Center ably help us reflect on these sensibilities.

The parade is a local heritage festival: a point of pride and reference for Madison and Dane County's focus and attention. It is also much more than that, as it represents a regional, statewide and Midwest destination for individuals, groups and organizations that want a spectacular setting to show their pride and spirit in the annual march around Wisconsin's State Capitol. With the conclusion of the high school basketball tournaments, the parade makes a lively conclusion to the local March madness scene.

Committee members hope to make the parade a historically relevant destination for families, individuals, groups, and organizations. We are beginning an official proceeding to record participants that will become a tool and reference for the celebration of Irish history, culture and tradition.

While all are welcome to come to the square to watch, you are also welcome to participate. The St. Patrick's Parade Committee has two registration forms available to make the day more accessible to you.

First, is the registration form to participate in the parade. Families, friends, clubs, and other groups are welcome to show their colors, have some fun, display a family crest or participate in a contest.

Second, is a form to to register as a volunteer for the parade. Some of the tasks are already completed for this year, but you are welcome to join now in anticipation of helping more next year.

We hope to see you at any of this year's events. It's a great day to be Irish!
