Denver St. Patrick's Day Parade


Calling all Volunteers - 

2022 - 60th Anniversary Parade Information

Committee Chairs Needed:  With the cancellation of the 2020 and 2021 Parades due to Covid-19 we need to reform our Parade Sub-committees.  While I know some committees have retained their past Chari(s), we still need to identify those members and get folks to step forward to help with committees who do not currently have a Chair assigned.  Therefore, after the annual meeting we will be gearing up to begin planning for the 2022 Parade.  We will need to reconstitute our Chairs for critical committees needed for the 2022 parade.  A preliminary list of committees is below. Please contact any Board member with your questions or interest. 

Parade Entries    Marshalls Committee     PR & Marketing Committee       
Grandstand Committee      Ticketing Committee     Pub Crawl Committee      
Permits Committee     Finance Committee        Membership Float Committee   
Membership Committee     Information Technology Committee     
 
Sponsorship & Fundraising Committee

Thank you for your continued membership in the Parade Committee.  We hope to hear from some of you with your interest in a Board or Chair position, and we hope to see all of you at the annual meeting and election. 

Activities and Fundraising: We are looking to you, the membership, for activities and fundraising possibilities to consider during 2021 while we plan for the 2022 parade.  Please let us know your ideas and how they could be implemented.    Get Togethers: We are hoping to be able to plan a fun “in person” get-together sometime later in the year, depending on safety and health conditions.
