An opportunity to shake off cabin fever and "say goodbye to Old Man Winter. Come out to celebrate the impending spring" go back outdoors for a big community celebration. Grab your green garb ~ clothing and accessories to join in on the fun!
Live entertainment, specials, festivities, and of course Corned Beef can be expected throughout the day and night at bars and restaurants in both East and West Dundee on both days. All events are in walking distance.
Pet Parade 9:30 AM
2023 Shamrocks for Charity: Over 10K in 5 YEARS! Since 2018 the Shamrocks for Charity project has collected more than $12,500! Local establishments sell and display handcrafted postcard signed shamrocks for $5. Year after year our Shamrocks have been recycled and reused. In 2022 we expanded and sold customized commemorative buttons and suspenders to help raise over $7000. In fact, we are very proud to say every penny collected for the Shamrock’s sale leading up to the Parade has raised more money year after year!
