Now in our 51st year, the Metropolitan St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee has grown from one small St. Patrick's Day event to three public world-class events and a vibrant membership organization. The committee was founded with the goal of bringing the St. Louis area a celebration of Irish involvement in the American experience.
Membership in the committee consists of an all-volunteer pool of men and women from a broad spectrum of St. Louis backgrounds. They possess the desire to better the environment around them by extending the resources of talent and financial support, for the benefit of those in need within the St. Louis community.
The committee does not have any paid employees. The Metropolitan St. Patrick's Day Parade in St. Louis, Inc., is a tax-exempt public charity qualified under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, contributions to which are deductible as charitable contributions.
