The biggest St Patrick’s Day event Boston has, the annual South Boston St Patrick’s Day Parade 2024 / Evacuation Day Parade returns on Sunday, March 17, 2024, at 1:00 pm! The parade begins at Broadway Station and ends at Andrew Square. We suggest grabbing a spot anywhere along Broadway to watch the Boston St Patrick’s Day Parade 2024!

You’ll get to watch green-clothed people, bands, and other fun elements stroll down the streets as they spread some Irish luck and cheer.

Boston St Patrick’s Day Parade Route:

The St Patrick’s Day Parade Boston 2024 starts at Broadway Station, then to West Broadway, which then turns to East Broadway until P Street. From P Street, it continues to East Fourth Street to K Street, then turns left until East Fifth Street.

From there, it will turn right until G Street and continue past Excel High School until the second right onto Thomas Park. The parade will then take the second right onto Thomas Park and follow Telegraph Street to Dorchester Street. The Boston St Patrick’s Day Parade 2024 will end at Andrew Square.

Where to Watch the Parade:

Depending on the kind of experience you want, obviously. Broadway, especially between Broadway Station and L Street, is a terrific spot to be if you want to see the St Patrick’s Day Parade Boston 2024 from one of the many eateries along the route or if you want to watch it with the crowd. Great options for seeing the parade from locations away from Broadway include Medal of Honor Park, Thomas Park, and other nearby parks if you want to avoid the throng.
