    The first annual Colorado Springs St. Patrick’s Day Parade was held 38 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!

    No place to park downtown for the Parade or Race?

    We often partner with PikeRide, a bike share system available to the public, but you can always rent one of their bikes in many locations through out Colorado Springs.


    PikeRide.org or find them on theirs Socials!

Lenny the Leprechaun has run off again, and without your help finding him, we may not be able to have a parade this year! Last year participants were given clues that helped them keep hot on his trail! Visiting different downtown businesses and collecting different clues along the way we were able to find Lenny! Help us again this year and get your Leprechaun Locator shirt when you sign up to help!

    A fun “scavenger hunt” located in Downtown Colorado Springs, participants get a shirt and trinkets along the way as they follow the clue sheet from location to location searching for Lenny the Leprechaun! We try to keep it to around ten stops, and there is a photo opp at the end (and maybe some ice cream from Josh & Johns)! It’s $15 per child and will be held Saturday March 5, from noon to 3 o’clock. The activity takes about an hour to complete and is just shy of being s full mile walk. Please dress in layers. There is no time restraint once you start, so if you want to stop and have lunch at any of the restaurants who are helping you find Lenny, please do. We just ask that you arrive at the final stop by 3 PM.

    If we are successful, Locators will be able to attend the Parade and wave to Lenny on March 12, 2021 at noon.
