Become a Sponsor

The Parade Committee is seeking sponsors to help guarantee another successful parade year.  The Fort Lauderdale St. Patrick’s Parade & Festival has grown into a exciting family-friendly event, drawing over 65,000 participants and spectators from not only across Fort Lauderdale, but also other states and foreign countries as well. It is by far the largest Saint Patrick’s Parade in Florida.

The local community looks forward to the parade with many resident civic groups, schools, and businesses participating. Many newspapers and magazines print articles about the parade, including Fort Lauderdale and Broward New Times magazines along with the Sun Sentinel newspaper. The parade is broadcasted over local radio and cable television.  It is one of the most requested rebroadcast programs on local access cable television. In addition to the huge draw the parade has, local hotels and restaurants consider it one of busiest days of the year.

Because we are a 501(c)3 non-profit, all sponsorship proceeds above operating costs go to numerous non-profit organizations throughout South Florida.

The parade is also a role model image for our children and local community. Fort Lauderdale being so rich in culture and history expresses this by honoring our Irish heritage and saluting our uniformed Police officers, Firefighters, and EMS personnel. Please contact Tim McGovern or James Campbell if interested in donating at (954) 290-6115.
