Join us for the Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade! 

The 2018 events will be held on Saturday, March 17, 2018 kicked off by the parade at high noon!

For more info visit:

REGISTRATION (NEW INFO) is now being gathered in one central location for “open entry” downtown parades to help provide better communication with entrants, parade hosts and Shawnee County Emergency Management (SCEM). Click here to access the online form on the Downtown Topeka Inc website (form appears on the right). This allows us to inform you of upcoming parades and forward updates as changes arise. The information you provide, especially your driver’s license, is not shared with outside entities except for the purpose of assisting in case of a Mass Casualty Emergency. The information is NOT processed under scrutiny by law enforcement. It allows us to have a database of contacts in case of emergency and also assists SCEM perform practice drills in case they are ever faced with a mass casualty situation, affording them additional grant funding through FEMA. We appreciate your cooperation. If you are uncomfortable providing the complete information or unsure who a driver will be, you can have your license scanned in the staging entry by SCEM prior to entering the parade route. No one driving a vehicle will be allowed in the parade route without registering either on this site or with the SCEM in staging.

THE PARADE ROUTE will be posted soon.

Be sure to thank our fine Topeka Police Department men and women for their ongoing assistance during our parade. We love our TPD!

Alert! We need volunteers!

For more information, contact the Parade Master, Mark Sweeney at .

May you have warm words on a cold evening,
a full moon on a dark night,
and the road downhill all the way to your door.
