St. Patrick's Day Parade in Sydney once was the biggest in the world after New York. However, since 2015 there hasn't been a major parade in the center of the city. The biggest highlight of the holiday here is when the Sydney Opera House lights up in green. Also, a smaller parade and celebration is held in Moore Park, Entertainment Quarter.

The whole Entertainment Quarter turns green on St.Patricks's Day. The parade starts at noon, and entertainment activities last for the whole day. There is a lot of music on the big stage. Saint Pat’s Family Day has its own stage for children's musical performances and other acts. There is a children’s parade and an exclusive play zone with bouncing castles, face painting, animal rides, clowns and other activities. Irish dancers show their best, while local marching bands make sure the atmosphere is solemn and festive. Besides, there are dozens of vendors with lots of wonderful food and drinks during the day.
