Some NJ St. Patrick’s Day parades postpone due to weather, others will go on. Here’s the list.


A previous version of this story was published on March 2.

New Jersey is gearing up for an almost full roster of St. Patrick’s Day parades following two years of cancellations and disruptions due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Though St. Patrick’s Day is always on March 17, parades and other celebrations typically occur on weekends and during the first three weeks of the month.

Only two of 28 parades surveyed by NJ Advance Media have been canceled due to coronavirus concerns. But others have postponed, citing a nasty winter storm expected to cross North Jersey this weekend.

Below is a list of New Jersey’s St. Patrick’s Day parades in 2022.
