St. Patrick’s Day 2022 events to be held on Saturday March 12 on Greenville Avenue

The 2022 St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival events will be held Saturday March 12 on Greenville Avenue. A collaborative effort between the Dallas Police Department, Dallas Fire and Rescue, the Office of Special Events, Code, Sanitation and Parking Enforcement will minimize the impact on the surrounding community. The team will have extensive controls on noise, cleanup, parking, security, and safety.

Please be advised the following events with street closures, St. Paddy’s Day Dash Down Greenville, Dallas St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival, and the St. Patrick’s Day Block Party, are scheduled to occur on March 12 in addition to numerous other parties and celebrations. Event organizers expect an estimated 90,000 people in attendance. 

Road closures related to the many special events and the large volume of pedestrian traffic along Greenville Avenue will impact traffic around Greenville Avenue from Park Lane to Vickery Boulevard between 6:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. To avoid street closures related to the events, avoid Greenville Avenue and use Skillman Street, McMillan Avenue, and Central Expressway to travel southbound and northbound. Please use google maps to detour around street closures for the day as all traffic closures have been uploaded.

Residents and businesses located between Central Expressway and Greenville Avenue should utilize entrances and exits west of Greenville Avenue.

For the parade, four pedestrian crossing points will be available at Southwestern Boulevard, Lovers Lane, Milton Street, and University Boulevard.
