Albany’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade back in-person for first time since COVID

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Albany will be an in-person event again this year, after going virtual last year and being canceled in 2020 because of the pandemic.

This year’s event will be Saturday, March 12.

The traditional mass at Blessed Sacrament Church will happen at 9 a.m. Then, the parade steps off at 2 p.m. at the corner of Quail and Central. It ends at State and Green.

This year will be the city’s 72nd annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
