2021 Parade has been cancelled :-(
It is with a heavy heart that the Friends of St. Patrick announce that there will be no Miller Place-Rocky Point St. Patrick’s Day parade this year. The safety of our marchers and supporters must take precedence over the joy the parade has been bringing to the North Shore of Brookhaven Town for over 70 years. The Friends of St. Patrick appreciate the huge support they receive from the local community and its many businesses.
We look forward to bringing the parade back, bigger and better than ever, in March, 2022.
Stay safe, be well,
The Friends of St Patrick
Founded in 1949 by businessmen John M. Sullivan and George Faulkner, the Friends of St. Patrick launched their first Miller Place - Rocky Point St. Patrick’s Day parade on March 11, 1950. Since that day, so many aspects of the parade have changed. The parade route, once a rustic two-lane road, is now a highly developed four-lane highway. The spectators, once numbering in the hundreds, are now in the tens of thousands. Yet the original goal of bringing our community together, as set by the co-founders so many years ago, still remains today.
The Friends of St. Patrick welcomes you to our website and encourages you to visit our About Us page for a more in depth look at the founders and the rich history of this organization. In addition, there are many resources available to you including parade attendee request forms , cocktail party invitations, donation information , golf outing attendee and sponsorship forms.
