NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2022 Returns: How to Watch

New York’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade makes a full return for the first time since 2019.

As the coronavirus pandemic began in March 2020, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade was one of the first major NYC events to be canceled on March 10th. It was the first time in the parade’s 261-year history that it was closed.

This year’s parade route runs through 5th Avenue in Manhattan. Commuters and motorists should expect road closures around 5th Avenue from 43rd Street to 84th Street.

The best view of the parade is along 5th Avenue, according to the parade’s website. The parade is scheduled to begin at 11am sharp, but parade participants are asked to get there early to secure good seats for the event.

The parade will also observe a minute’s silence at 12 p.m. dedicated to both the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks and victims of the coronavirus pandemic. New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan will mark the moment with a prayer on the steps of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Midtown.

The parade is scheduled to take place rain or shine. According to the website, “The parade marched under a variety of meteorological conditions that included various instances of inconveniences.” Unfortunately, the forecast for Manhattan shows a chance of light rain for most of the day between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. according to AccuWeather.

For those unable to attend in person, the parade will also be televised by NBC 4 and Live stream on their website. The show will too be available on Hulu and YouTube.
