The St. Patrick Society presents Grand Parade XXXVII on Saturday, March 18, 2023. Parade organizers are most interested in participants expressing the spirit of St. Patrick and Irish Heritage, and encourage family walking units and decorated floats. Applicants of a purely commercial theme are not permitted.

The parade will travel through downtown Rock Island, across the Mississippi River via the Talbot/Centennial Bridge to W. Third Street and proceed east through downtown Davenport, Iowa along a route to the RiverCenter at E. Third and Perry Streets. The Post-Parade Bash will take place at the RiverCenter from 1-4 PM.
