St Patrick's Day Parade

March 11, 2016

    Today from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM is the 165th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival, taking place at Civic Center Plaza. The parade begins at 11:30 AM at the corner of 2nd & Market.

    This is one of the busiest events of the year with over 100,000 people in attendance. With these crowds and road closures, also come inevitable transit changes. Don’t worry though, we’ve updated the app so you can get the smoothest ride available to the parade.


    Irish dance troupes, marching bands, floats as well as live music:

    11:00 am to 12:30 pm The Irish News Boys

    1:00 pm to 2:30 pm The Shams

    3:00 pm to 4:30 pm O’Craven

    Transit Disruptions 

    SF Muni patrons can expect service disruptions and reroutes on the following lines: 2, 5, 6, 8X, 9, 10, 12, 19, 21, 27, 30, 31, 38, 38L, 45, 71 and F-Market and Wharves Metro until the parade concludes at 2:30pm.
