Parking Near St. Patrick's Day Parade

Taking place on the Saturday before St. Patrick's Day, the St. Patrick's Day Parade features bagpipes, community programs, live entertainment, and, of course, a green Chicago River!

The dyeing of the Chicago River begins this year at 10 AM while the parade starts at 12:15 PM. We recommend arriving before 9:00 to avoid the crowds. Try and avoid heavy traffic on Columbus Street by taking Lake Shore Drive or State Street instead. If you're coming from the west, you'll want to park before Michigan Ave. Overall the best place to find parking near the parade is on Wabash, between Congress and Lake.

With the help of SpotHero, enjoy the convenience of booking a parking spot ahead of time, ensuring you have a space waiting for you when you get to St. Patrick's Day Parade.

To get started, select the timeframe you wish to book parking for, find your ideal spot on the map, and head to checkout to complete your reservation!


How does SpotHero work?

SpotHero is a parking reservation service. We partner with different facilities nationwide to provide you with tons of parking options and premium rates.

While SpotHero does not own or operate any of these locations, we do work very closely with the operators we partner with to ensure you have a seamless parking experience every time you park!

Do I have to enter and exit at exactly the time listed on my reservation?

Similar to how a hotel reservation works, you can enter at any time after the start time listed on your SpotHero reservation, and you can depart at any time prior to the end time listed on your reservation.

For example, if your reservation goes from 8 am to 8 pm, you can enter any time after 8 am, and must leave anytime before 8 pm. Please be aware that any time spent parked outside of your reservation is subject to a ticket, tow, or an additional charge (at the drive-up rate) from the parking facility.
