Homes First in the St. Patrick’s Parade


Is that the leprechaun and where’s the pot of gold? Great news! Homes First will be celebrating in Toronto’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade and you can join us. The parade is an amazing annual carnival that attracts 500,000 people a year in Toronto. It is widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world on Irish heritage, culture, and history. The participants include marching bands, the military, fire brigades, cultural organizations, charitable organizations, voluntary associations, church groups, and so on. It is customary to wear shamrocks and green clothing and accessories on St. Patrick’s Day.


Homes First participants please arrive by Hoskin Ave. (by College St and U of T Robart’s Library, click here for the directions) and St. George between 11am-11:30am. There will be an information booth that will direct you to where Homes First will be lined up as part of the parade. The route is about 3.5 km long and should be over by 1:30pm. There will be free swag, decorative signs and banners. Please wear as much green as possible and have fun while raising awareness and support for Homes First. 

This is a kid friendly event.
