Boston’s famous St. Patrick’s Day Parade has been canceled once again due to COVID-19.
Looks like there won’t be a St. Patrick’s Day Parade this year either Bostonians! For the second year in a row, the popular event has been canceled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The South Boston Allied Veterans Council tweeted earlier on Tuesday, January 19, that it would be canceling this year’s event due to the ” state restrictions limiting outdoor public events to 25.”
Due to ongoing state restrictions limiting outdoor public events to 25 people, the 2021 South Boston St. Patrick's Day / Evacuation Day Parade has been canceled. We look forward to finally seeing you all again in 2022.

The parade has now been canceled twice due to coronavirus. Early last year, Mayor Marty Walsh issued a statement canceling the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in South Boston. Walsh issued the announcement early in March while the risk in Boston was still low but explained that the decision was “made out of an abundance of caution to ensure that we are doing what is needed to keep the residents of Boston safe and healthy.”
