Kansas City goes green again on Saturday, March 17, 2018! Join 100,000 or so of your best friends at the Kansas City St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Westport. The parade, which was named one of America’s best St. Patrick’s Day parades by U.S. News and World Report, starts at 11 a.m.
The theme of the 2018 Kansas City St. Patrick’s Day Parade is “The Pipes are Calling: A Celebration of Irish Music.” The theme is a tribute to Jody Watson, a beloved member of the parade committee who died in 2017. Jody served as the Lone Piper who kicked off the St. Patrick’s Day Parade for more than 27 years.
The parade will begin at Broadway and Linwood (33rd St.), and go south on Broadway to 43rd Street.
