Join us on Sunday, March 17 at 1:00 p.m. to celebrate all things Irish and Memphis in our fourth annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. The 2019 theme is “The Irish, Perennial Servants of the People, Honor Public Servants.” Historically, the Irish community has held roles in the police, fire, religious, education and the military sectors throughout the world. We would like to highlight those roles of service this year.
The Memphis Irish Society has had a presence in Memphis for the last 200 years. They foster education in and celebration of Irish heritage, culture and people. Currently, there are over 135-member households of the MIS throughout the Mid-South. St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. St. Patrick rid the isle of snakes and converted the native people to Christianity, among many other marvelous acts. On March 17, the American Irish along with the Irish in Ireland celebrate all manner of Irish culture and heritage with parades, ceilidhs (parties, pronounced “KAY-lees), concerts, dancing, singing, feasting and going to church.
Please join us as we have our own celebration here in Cooper Young. Cooper Street will close at 1:00 p.m. between York and Walker Streets and the parade will start promptly at 2:00 p.m. A bandstand will be in front of Celtic Crossing located at 903 South Cooper Street to announce parade participants.
The parade will begin at York Street and will precede south on Cooper Street to Walker Street. If your group would like to be in the parade, please contact Mary Ann Lucas firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wear green and bring your family. Join us for the fun and festivities! Everyone is invited.
Memphis has its fair share of historic neighborhoods. And our city’s many entertainment districts are legendary. But no place in the Mid-South, and quite possibly no place anywhere, owns a personality like you’ll encounter in Cooper-Young.
Eclectic only begins to describe it. Century-old homes tucked among family-owned businesses and contemporary gathering spots. Young and talented creative types mingle among families and life-long residents.
What began as a large private land investment quickly turned into a thriving residential community. Through boom and bust, struggle and growth, Cooper-Young never lost that unmistakable sense of community you’ll feel any time you visit, in any season of the year.
