Friends, A chairde

Failte! Welcome to our St. Pat's for All website! Failte roimh go leir!

Warmed by the hospitable community of Sunnyside and Woodside, we return this year to Skillman Avenue. We gather here to celebrate our shared heritage, Irish and Celtic. Whether in exile, fleeing famine, or pursuing dreams and hopes for liberty, equality and happiness, the Irish through the centuries have scattered across the globe, always enhancing the communities they join.

Here in New York St Pats for All 2014 is a generous coming together of business, community groups, unions, artists and musicians who for few hours turns the streets of Sunnyside and Woodside into "Ireland of the welcomes". Hospitality is at the heart of this diverse and inclusive St. Patrick's celebration which each year welcomes the diverse immigrant communities of Queens.

Annually, the parade is a result of months of meetings hosted by Sunnyside residents Patrick Langhenry and Raisa Wu.

We thank our sponsors and supporters including YES!Solutions, Irish Arts Center, Dignity/NY, Anita Daly, The Arts Council of Ireland and many local businesses, groups and individuals who gave generously through the years.

When we began this parade more than a decade ago we could not have imagined the friendships and community spirit that sustained and helped the parade grow beyond the streets of Queens to include concerts at the Irish Arts Center, community centers, schools and pubs.

This parade is New York's most diverse St. Patrick's parade, embracing LGBT contingents, community groups, children's bands, Irish organizations and religious and civic groups, all in celebration of Ireland!

Unique among the St. Patrick's parades our is open and welcoming to ALL who wish to share in the hospitable and festive spirit of the day.

Join us. Bring your wild and wonderful energy and color to the streets. Help liven and lighten our celebration and gathering. Help our parade sparkle!

Many Thanks, Mile Buiochas!,
