Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade Has Been Canceled for the Second Year in a Row

January 19, 2021

BOSTON — Boston’s storied St. Patrick’s Day parade has been canceled for the second year in a row.

Organizers said Tuesday that ongoing state restrictions that limit outdoor public events to 25 people mean the 2021 South Boston St. Patrick’s Day/Evacuation Day Parade had to be canceled. A Facebook post said the organizers “look forward to finally seeing you all again in 2022.”

The parade, held every March and organized by the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council, traces it roots back more than a century and regularly involves hundreds of bands and floats and up to a million spectators.

St. Patrick’s Day parades in Holyoke and Worcester have already been canceled.
