Event Details

The Valley Community Association’s signature event – the 25th Annual “Old Neighborhood” St. Patrick’s Day Parade – will kick off on Saturday, March 17th, 2018 at 12 Noon from the Valley Community Center.

The parade will wind through the streets of the historic Buffalo River Community including South Park Avenue, Smith Street, Elk Street, Hamburg Street, and South Street.

Over 100 marching units are anticipated to participate, making the “Old Neighborhood” St. Patrick’s Day Parade just as large as the downtown edition!! Marching contingents will include marching bands, floats, social clubs, classic cars, Irish dancers, family clans, fire and police departments, and much more!!

Viewing of the parade is available along South Park Avenue (between Hamburg Street and Smith Street), Smith Street (between South Park Avenue and Elk Street), Elk Street (between Smith Street and South Park Avenue), Hamburg Street (between South Park Avenue and South Street), and South Street (between Hamburg Street and Louisiana Street).

Immediately following the parade is the traditional grand Irish “Hooley” featuring live music by “Emerald Isle” as well as plenty of food and drink. The “Hooley” runs from 1pm-5:30pm at the Valley Community Center, located at 93 Leddy Street, Buffalo, New York. The Hooley is a 21 and up event and those under 21 must be accompanied by an adult.

The Hooley and Parade serve as a fundraiser for the Valley Community Association’s services and programs, which include affordable child care that is nurturing, educational, and stimulating for children ages 6 weeks and up; academic, social, and recreational programming for school age youth; programs and services for senior citizens that promote socialization and wellness; family support services including a food pantry, resume preparation, job search assistance, and help navigating the human service system; community events; and neighborhood beautification projects such as the Buffalo River Fest Park, Mutual Riverfront Park, and Valley Nature Park & Habitat Trail.
