Parade Applications are here!  As you all know, it is impossible to accommodate everyone who would like to be part of the parade so you’ll want to get your application back to our coordinators, Carrie & Jody, as soon as possible.

Special consideration will be given to entries with an Irish theme, of course. And priority will also be afforded to musical groups, truly classic cars, and one-of-a-kind crowd-pleasers. We also love to see our local groups and kids well represented. Because of limited formation space, a completed entry form is not an assurance that you will be included in this year’s event. Strictly commercial entries are limited to major Irish Day sponsors but contact us and let us know what you have planned so we can help you make sure your entry will be considered.

Applications must be received by March 3 to allow sufficient time to create a parade line-up and send confirmation notices. If you have questions, please contact Carrie Nelson 209 728-2304, Jody Garcia 209 743-7492, or just email us at

There is no entry fee, and there will be no judging of entries. Your reward will be participating in an important Gold Country event and receiving the appreciation of the parade watchers!
