St. Patrick’s Day Festivities
Join us in March for Wisconsin’s largest Saint Patrick’s Day Parade along with an Irish Fest in downtown New London, Wisconsin. The legendary week of festivities begin when local Shamrock Club leprechauns change the town’s name to ‘New Dublin’.
St. Patrick’s Day Parade
The Grand Parade typically has an extensive lineup of bagpipe bands, marching bands, festive clowns, specialty units, clans, an Irish wake parody, and business floats–up to 125 units or more. Bring the whole family to watch this nationally recognized event!
New Dublin Irish Fest
Irish Fest is a music festival held under a huge heated big top that each year features two dynamic Celtic bands. Enjoy Irish food, beverages, and browse market booths.
Weeknight Venues & Cuisine
St. Patrick’s Day in New Dublin is a week-long celebration that includes an exciting schedule of weeknight activities. They include; Irish caroling, Irish entertainment on stage, an Irish Céili gathering, and Finnegan’s Wake. Corned beef and cabbage is widely served during the week in area restaurants and pubs with some places usually having entertainment.
