2021 Event Announcement
The Colorado Springs Saint Patrick’s Day Parade Committee and The Grand Prix of Running have decided to host only the 5k for St. Patrick’s Day Run on March 13, 2021. There will be no Parade or Leprechaun Fun Run in 2021. The bike ride has permanently been moved to the fall (more information follow).
We know this may come as a blow to many of you and your annual traditions, but this decision was made to keep as many people safe from COVID-19 and it’s variant strains.

to SPRING in
The first annual Colorado Springs St. Patrick’s Day Parade was held 37 years ago in Old Colorado City. After outgrowing the West Side we moved our festivities to the center of the city. Today we are the biggest and best start to events in the heart of Colorado Springs’ Downtown, every year!
Join thousands of runners, dozens of dancing groups, Celtic bands, marching bands, schools, charities, businesses, and more for this celebration of Irish and Springtime in the West!
