Northside Irish Culture & Arts, Inc. (“Northside ICA”), a 501c3 charitable organization dedicated to preserving and promoting Irish heritage, traditions, arts, sports, and culture in the Northern Metro-Atlanta area, is proud to announce that the 2nd Annual Northside Saint Patrick’s Parade & Festival will be held on Saturday, March 23rd, 2024, in Sandy Springs, Georgia. The Parade will step off at 11am, with the Festival following immediately on the CityGreen adjacent to Sandy Springs City Hall.
Following on the success of the inaugural event this past March, the Parade will once again feature a variety of participants including marching bands, City and State officials, local and national Irish organizations, Irish arts, music, and dance groups, neighborhood and civic organizations, churches, schools, families, Irish Artisans and more. Food vendors will be onsite, as well as other refreshments.
“It truly was an honor to be part of and sponsor the 2023 inaugural event. As a small local business and Irish Pub we work year round to host events that highlight the Irish culture, while at the same time be as involved in the greater community as possible. This was a no brainer for us and a great success from our standpoint” said Butch Elmgren, owner of Thos. O’Reilly’s Public House in Sandy Springs.
“We had a very good debut this past March, and are looking to build on that for a bigger and better event this year” said Mike Moors, President of Northside ICA. “We strive to make this a hometown, family friendly community event, free to all to attend. We achieved that and will continue to replicate the formula going forward. As a privately funded initiative we thank all who sponsored and donated last year, and hope those generous individuals and enterprises can join in again – as well as many new participants – to enable us to present for your enjoyment the 2024 edition of this celebration of all things Irish, in honor of the Patron Saint of Ireland.”
