Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day like an islander on March 16th and 17th during this year’s IrishFest!

Hilton Head’s Annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade is the largest and most anticipated parade on the island, bringing bands and specialty groups from across the country and a crowd of almost 25,000 strong together on one festive parade route. Within recent years, the annual celebration transitioned into a two-day event with the addition of a free concert the night before the parade, allowing the festivities to last all weekend long.
