The Défilé de la St-Patrick de Québec Presents its 2012 Program

Québec, March, 2012 –   The organising committee of the Défilé de la St-Patrick de Québec unveiled its program at a press conference held at the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac. 

The parade’s spokesperson Vincent Matte described the lineup of Québec City’s third edition. The event will take place Saturday, March 24, 2012 at 1:30 p.m. The route begins at St. Patrick’s High School, continuing down along rue St-Jean to end at l’hôtel de Ville

“It is always a pleasure to celebrate this special day for the Irish here in our city, said Québec City’s deputy mayor, Michelle Morin-Doyle. In addition to being able to demonstrate our attachment to Québécois of Irish origin, this parade will be particularly special. It will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first Stanley Cup won by the Québec Bulldogs. Let’s be proud of our diverse origins and get together for this memorable event!”  

The theme of this year’s parade will be the history of the Irish in Québec. We will highlight Irish presence in Québec with, among others, actors wearing the colours of two-time Stanley Cup champions, the Québec Bulldogs…we welcome the son of Joe Malone, the team’s star player, as well as a singer entertaining with the music of La Bolduc. Other historical figures will also be included in the timeline. 

The NYPD Pipes and Drums returns, along with several other piping bands, music, street entertainers, Irish Wolfhounds, and Canadian Horses. 

The Défilé de la St-Patrick de Québec is proud to be associated with its partners: la Ville de Québec, Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, Tanguay, Astral Media, Pub Galway, Vize, and Frank O’Dowd Inc.
