Additional Information


On Saturday, March 11, venture out to Lower Greenville Avenue for the 42nd Dallas Mavericks St. Patrick’s Parade and Festival, hosted by the Greenville Avenue Area Business Association and presented by the Dallas Mavericks. The parade steps off at Greenville Avenue at Blackwell Street at 11am. The festival runs from 9am–3pm.

The Dallas St. Patrick’s Parade & Festival (formerly known as the Greenville Avenue St. Patrick’s Parade) is a Dallas tradition that began in 1979 with a few vehicles and a quick trip down lower Greenville. Now the parade hosts over 90 floats and draws thousands of people.

Fans might remember that Mavs governor Mark Cuban helped revive the iconic parade in 2012. He’s a staunch supporter of the celebration and scholarship fund. In the past, Cuban has served as grand marshal.

Proceeds from the parade will benefit and support the GAABA Scholarship Fund for graduating seniors from Dallas ISD schools. Each year, the fund provides $45,000 to students at Conrad, Woodrow and North Dallas high schools.
