The Irish Society of the National Capital Region and the Ottawa Irish Festival are bringing together local community groups in a citywide celebration of Irish-Canadian culture.
The Ottawa Irish Festival — held March 10 to 17 — is a weeklong celebration of Irish roots, which remain strong in the capital.
The festivities will begin on Wednesday with a concert at the National Irish Canadian Cultural Centre at 7 p.m.
The 28th annual Ottawa St. Patrick’s Day parade, followed by the Grand Irish Party, will be held at 11 a.m. on March 13. The parade, with honorary parade marshal Charlie Muldoon, will begin at city hall on Laurier Avenue West and proceed to Lansdowne Park. Food donations and cash will be collected along the parade route.
