BATON ROUGE, Louisiana

MARCH 1- MARCH 20, 2022 – From the people who bring you the city’s St. Patrick’s Day events, The Parade Group, LLC wants you to participate in Greening Baton Rouge! Get ready to go green!

The Wearin’ of the Green St Patrick’s Day Parade is excited to announce the second Greening Baton Rouge. Let’s light up the city green! To accomplish the goal, The Parade Group, LLC is

asking businesses and residents to turn their outside lights green from March 1 through March 20th. Parade day is Saturday, March 19, 2022.

Our hope is that for years to come Baton Rouge will become known for its St. Patrick’s Day greening and help to attract visitors to the city and state to join in the fun.

This will be the 37th year and the 35th rolling of The Wearin’ of the Green St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Our Grand Marshal is Todd Graves, CEO of Raising Canes and Baton Rouge native.

The Parade Group, LLC would like to thank Visit Baton Rouge and the Baton Rouge Chamber for supporting this Greening of Baton Rouge community outreach.

Organizers ask residents and visitors to use the hashtag #irishparadebr or #stpatsbr to share photos of their green lights and Wearin’ of the Green fun! Email your photos to!
