The Athletic Club Foundation is proud to host the 39th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade Presented by the Hoosier Lottery on Friday, March 15, 2019 at 11:30am in downtown Indianapolis. The Parade Committee invites a number of units to be in the Parade each year and we are always looking for Parade units that have entertainment value, use a St. Patrick's theme and show originality & creativity. Acceptance and participation in the Parade is strictly subject to the discretion of the Parade Committee who reserves the right to reject any application for any reason. The Parade is limited in the number of units. The Parade Committee does have a float sponsor program where you can have a professionally built float in the Parade. Parade inquiries can be sent to or you can call 317-498-5299.
