To all those who came out to support the 90th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade


The Ancient Order of Hibernians once again orchestrated a successful parade in Huntington. On Sunday, March 10, the AOH, joined by community friends, marched down New York Avenue with their celebrated 2024 Grand Marshal, Monsignor Steven Camp. The weather held just long enough for spectators to see the parade of pipers, fire departments, horses, friends, and community partners. The parade marked the culmination of a week-long celebration that began the Friday prior with the Grand Marshal’s Ball at Oheka Castle and ended Sunday with the parade and gathering of friends and family at the monumental after-party at St. Patrick’s School.

A special thank you to our 2024 Grand Marshal, Monsignor Camp, whose friendship and support allow the AOH to work within the community and continue to grow.

The Huntington St. Patrick's Parade is Long Island's oldest and largest and features dozens of pipe bands, including some of the metro area's finest. Few realize the expense of running such a significant event, which includes band sponsorship fees, insurance, and advertising. Some mistakenly believe the Town runs and pays for the parade; it does not. The Huntington Ancient Order of Hibernians has organized and produced all of the costs of this extraordinary parade every year since 1930 (there were no parades during WWII).

The AOH raises funds through a special St. Patrick's Day journal insert published in Newsday. Newsday's pull-out special section contains all the parade specifics, a history of the parade, pictures, and advertisements paid for by our generous sponsors. Consider supporting this fantastic event and organization by buying an ad in next year's journal. Email for more information.
