St. Patrick's Day ParadeJoin your fellow Setonians in Seton Hall’s inaugural march in the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade! Put your Pirate and Irish pride on display for all the world to see as you march up 5th Avenue!

Pirates of Irish Persuasion & Extraction (PIPE), Alumni Relations, University Events, and Public Relations and Marketing are collaborating to make our participation in the biggest and most-watched St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the world a huge success. This year, the Parade takes place on Saturday, March 16.

The Irish around the world have long celebrated St. Patrick’s Day to commemorate Ireland’s patron saint. We invite all Seton Hall students, alumni, faculty, staff, administrators, as well as their families and friends, to join us in celebrating St. Patrick’s mission in Ireland and the contributions that the Irish and those of Irish descent have made to our culture—and to Seton Hall itself. And, we celebrate equally the fact that although we all come from different backgrounds, we are united in the value we place on justice, joy, truth, and faith.

The day begins at 9:30 a.m. with a Mass, at the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception on the South Orange Campus, celebrated by Monsignor Joseph Reilly, Rector and Dean of Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology.

After Mass, we will proceed to the Pirate’s Cove to enjoy a festive bagel breakfast, generously donated by Gourmet Dining Services.

At 11 a.m., charter buses will leave from the University Center to bring us to Manhattan to celebrate one of the most exciting days of the year in New York!
In the evening, after our march is complete, our charter buses will return to Seton Hall’s campus. On the buses on the way back, participants will be eligible to win souvenir prizes donated by the Seton Hall Bookstore.

Tickets for this event are $12 each and can be purchased via eventbrite. The $12 ticket price includes charter bus transportation from and returning to Seton Hall, the bagel breakfast, and a commemorative Seton Hall Parade sash.

The deadline for ticket sales has been extended to Friday, March 15.

Seats are limited: order your ticket today!

For those who would like to march with us but are unable to join us on the charter buses, please meet us at Holy Cross School, 332 West 43rd Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues), Manhattan, no later than 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 16 to walk with us to our designated marshaling area.

*Please note: The New York St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee requires that all marchers wear business attire. For further rules regarding the line of march, please be sure to review the Participant Guidelines.
