St. Patricks' Day Parade is happening on the 16th of March 2014 at the Sydney CBD.

Celebrated widely by the Irish, St. Patrick's Day in Sydney will be marked with, among others, a parade. The St. Patrick's Day Parade will be held on 16 March 2014 at around midday. It will start at the corner of Bathurst and George Streets and proceed along George Street, turning right into Park Street and then left into Elizabeth St, and finally finishing up at James Street.

Celebrate the Irishness of Sydney on St. Patrick's Day.

The parade will showcase the Irishness of Sydney and its people through floats with six categories: Ireland and Australia of the Past (traditions, folklore, literature, historical events and places), 1788 (the beginning of the Irish in Sydney, the First Fleet), Convicts/Rebels/Explorers/Lawmakers, Famous Irish/Australians, Irish/Australian Cultural Connections (bush music, Aboriginal links, Irish dance, sports, universities, schools, and literature), and Ireland and Australia of the Present (current themes from Ireland and Australia). This array of themes make the parade something to look forward to.
