From the Kilted 5K race and parade on March 10 to the fireworks on March 17, few communities will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2018 better than the folks in Dundee, IL.

The grandstand will be located on River Street just South of Barrington Avenue in front of the East Dundee Depot.
The community will hand out a Fan Favorite trophy based on voting via Facebook, so, don’t forget to vote for your favorite parade entry.
After the Kilted 5K, the Grandstand area will open at 10 a.m. with a lot of shenanigans, including:
- Pet Parade

- Irish Dancers
- Crowning of the Irish Queen and Princess
- Presenting the DUbliNDEE Grand Marshall

With an Irish Song at 11 a.m. and as the parade approaches the Grandstand, veterans will present colors and the National Anthem.
Celebrations will be had all over DUbliNDEE!!
