Get ready for the 2024 St. Patrick’s Day Celebration in Easton, MD! This year, the focus is on people power! Join the Easton EDC and Talbot Thrive as we encourage everyone to come downtown and get moving. 

We are encouraging groups and individuals to join us on bicycles, skateboards and scooters! Let’s celebrate eco-friendly transportation! New this year, you can come as a team or join the giant Talbot Thrive group that will close out the parade. Participants are encouraged to wear green and distribute eco-friendly giveaways.

After the parade, stay downtown for our fan favorite St. Patrick’s Day Potato Race hosted by the Talbot County Young Professionals! 

Parade start: 5:30 PM
