The 13th annual Sober St. Patrick’s Day® Grand Celebration will take place after the NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade today.

Sober St. Patrick’s Day® will again “reclaim the day” on Saturday, March 16 with its signature family-friendly alcohol-free celebration of what’s best about Ireland.

The 13th annual edition of this internationally renowned event kicks off just as NYC’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is winding down and features great live Irish music, step dancers, crafts, games, food, refreshments, and more.
