St. Patrick's Day Parade in Toronto 2016 route and road closures

The St. Patrick's Day Parade in Toronto is back for 2016. The annual parade will kick off at 12 p.m. this Sunday, March 13, so if you want to celebrate the Patron Saint of Ireland with our Mayor, marching bands and a healthy dose of four leaf clovers, you're in luck.

The parade will begin at Bloor and St. George and continue along Bloor Street, down Yonge and finish on Queen Street at Nathan Philips Square. It's expected to take between one and one and a half hours. As a result, there will be a few road closures, so plan accordingly.
