Jan 17, 2018:
Registration for the 2018 St. Patrick's Day Parade is now open!
Thank you for your patience as we finalized everything. Application materials will be mailed out to past participants. New participants can download the materials through the "forms and applications" button to the left.
New for 2018: Online registration and payment for the parade is now available! Click here to begin!
With regrets, the Saint Patrick Society of Peoria will not be holding the Jack Kenney Gaelic Gallop 5K Run/Walk on March 4, 2018. Please join us at the Happy Hour 5K at Peoria Irish Fest in August.
The Society would like to thank everyone who participated in the 8th Annual Trivia Challenge! We packed The Fox with two chairs to spare. Twelve teams answered questions about Geography, Pop Culture, Literature, and of course Ireland.
Many special prizes were awarded throughout the evening, and several oohs and ahhs were heard during the goodie basket raffle. One lucky family even won a free entry into this year's parade!
We would also like to thank The Fox Pub & Cafe on Sommer Street for allowing us to host our event at their venue. If you haven't visited The Fox yet, be sure to check it out.
2018 Trivia Champions were:
3rd place: Hoof Hearted representing Jimmy's Bar
2nd place: Kelly Is Awesome, Team Captain: Kelly Hamilton
1st place: We Are Trivial, Team Captain: Rick Christian
The St. Patrick Society Board invites you to become a member of the Society and to support our efforts to remain true to our purpose as our Founders envisioned over three decades ago, “to perpetuate the heritage and history of the Irish people and to promote their ideals, traditions, and culture.”
We are pleased to announce that beginning in 2018, we will offer online registration for both new and current Society memberships, as we well as registration for the events we host including the annual Trivia Event, and the St. Patrick's Day Parade -- for both participants or volunteers!
If you are interested in volunteering at one, some, or all of our upcoming events including the Peoria Irish Fest, please send us a note and we will forward your message to the appropriate chairperson!
