The Hackettstown Business Improvement District (HBID) is bringing the 13th Annual St. Patrick’s Parade back to town, Sunday, March 13, 2022. This Irish-American tradition attracts more than 14,000 visitors—making this parade one of the biggest events in Hackettstown. Streets fill with enthusiasm as families, residents and visitors line up to celebrate and witness the festive parade.
Preceding the parade, join special guests for our St. Patrick’s Bar and Brew Crawl. This event will be held Thursday, February 24th from 6pm-close to support the St. Patrick’s Parade Committee. Celebrate at Marley’s Gotham Grill, Bea McNally’s Irish Pub, Man Skirt Brewing, and Czig Meister Brewing Company.
