This version of the St. Patrick's Day Parade has been ongoing since 1963. The tradition actually began in 1889 and continued through 1921. However, for more than four decades, Denver had no parade to mark the day. And while many think that the city is responsible for putting on the parade, they are mistaken. The Denver St Patrick's Day Parade Committee, Inc., a group of civic-minded volunteers who share a deep passion for Irish culture, is the guiding force behind the annual event. The charitable group is dedicated to ensuring that each year there are many sponsors to help with financing. This year's sponsors include Mickey's Top Sirloin, Colorado Hair Company, Sons of the American Legion, Colorado Parrothead Club, and the Fainting Goat Pub.
