Cead Mille Failte! A Hundred Thousand Welcomes to you as you browse the St. Patrick Society of Peoria Website. Each year, the St. Patrick Society of Peoria sponsors the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in downtown Peoria IL held on March 17th and the 3-Day Erin Feis (Peoria’s Irish Festival) held during the fourth weekend in August on the Peoria RiverFront.
The St. Patrick Society Board honors two people each year who have served and supported the St. Patrick Society and its events. The 2016 Grand Marshal is KC Murphy, and the 2016 Irish Mother of the Year is Sandy Whalen. The Society Board CONGRATULATES these two deserving Irish supporters. The 36th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade began at 11:00 AM on March 17, 2016.
The St. Patrick Society Board invites you to MARK your calendar for the 2016 Erin Feis (Peoria's Irish Festival) that will be held August 26, 27, & 28, 2016 on the Peoria RiverFront. The St. Patrick Society partners with the Peoria Park District in holding this 3-Day Irish Festival. Check out the Erin Feis website at www.erinfeispeoria.com. We are always looking for volunteers to help make this event happen.
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.”
