Three generations old, the 2023 Glen Cove St. Patrick’s Day Parade takes place on Sunday, March 19, 2023 and will celebrate the young people who are following in the footsteps of those who started this great tradition.
The Grand Marshal of the 2023 parade is Ryan W. Doherty, a Sergeant with the New York MTA Police. An acclaimed leader in law enforcement and the Irish American community, Sgt. Doherty is the son of Irish immigrants to Long Island. He and his family have been deeply involved in organizing the Glen Cove St. Patrick’s Day Parade since its inception.
Joining Ryan in leading the Parade will be a large group of Aides to the Grand Marshal who, like him, are the descendants of past Grand Marshals of the Parade.
The heart of the parade, as always, will be its exciting mix of marching groups, including bands of Irish pipers and other musicians, along with vintage cars, costumed performers, fire and police units, and much more. The parade is a true community celebration with marching groups from the Irish and the many other ethnic groupings who live in the area taking part. Come, join the fun!
