Bergenfield to Host 40th Annual Bergen County St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday

BERGENFIELD, NJ – This Sunday March 13 at 2pm, the Borough of Bergenfield will host the 40th Annual Bergen County St. Patrick’s Day Parade. This will mark the first time the parade has been held since the COVID-19 pandemic began, allowing the community to once again come together to celebrate not just Irish heritage and culture, but the return to normalcy that residents have been craving. 

 

The day will begin with the Feast of St. Patrick Mass at St. Mary’s Church in Dumont at 10am. Following the mass, at 1pm the Borough will raise the tri-color flag at Roy W. Brown School and at 2pm, the parade will commence on Washington Ave. from E. Englewood Ave. and end at Church St. 

 

“It is incredibly exciting for our borough to host the St. Patrick’s Day parade after years of being unable to celebrate as a result of COVID-19,” said Mayor Arvin Amatorio. “We are privileged to host this parade and thankful to everyone that worked so hard to put these events together. Sunday will be a phenomenal day in which we honor the Irish community and come together to celebrate our diversity.”
