From Irish dancers to Caribbean dancers, Welsh dragons to Chinese dragons,

the St Patrick's Festival has always been a vibrant celebration of multiculturalism. At 12 Noon a confetti blast signals the start of the St Patrick's Parade, and another fun filled festival celebrating the culture and diversity of Birmingham.

Birmingham’s St Patrick's Parade goes back to 1952 and was the first in Britain. It was originally started by the community to reinforce their identity and ensure their strong links with the home country. The parade has taken place in Digbeth since 1996 and has since grown enormously in stature. 2017 promises to be better than ever. Whilst being unmistakably Irish at the core, the Parade increasingly mirrors the fantastic diversity and multicultural nature of Birmingham, as we welcome guest appearances from other communities. What could be more Irish than extending hospitality?

Parade Day can get hectic for drivers so be careful where you park. Wheel clampers operate on private land around Digbeth and many sites are prohibited from parking. Look out for signs warning of wheel clamping and vehicle towing, they may be high up or obscured. There’s no such thing as a free parking space in the City Centre.

If you are going to park in a private Pay & Display car park, make sure you:
Pay for sufficient time to cover your visit
Display your ticket clearly in your windscreen, the correct way up, so that it can be read
Park within the marked bay
Do not park in spaces marked as ‘Reserved’
Do not park in spaces designated for the disabled, unless you have a valid blue badge clearly on display
Check the terms and conditions carefully on the signs.

If your vehicle has been clamped or towed, contact West Midlands Police on 0845 113 5000. Officers from West Midlands Police and Birmingham Trading Standards will patrol the area to assist motorists. Alternatively, contact Birmingham Trading Standards on 0121 303 6031 on Monday morning for assistance.
