The St. Patrick's Parade Committee is offering a new T-shirt this year that will be the official T-shirt of the parade.  A portion of the proceeds of sales of the shirt will go to the parade.  We expect to have a new design each year.

This T-shirt will be sold in the weeks prior to the parade in retail outlets and T-shirt stands throughout the city at full retail price. 

The Pittsburgh St. Patrick’s Day Parade is pleased to announce that its 2014 official parade T-shirt is now in production and is rolling out to retailers! In anticipation of Pittsburgh’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade in a few weeks, and as part of this announcement, the Parade Committee invites members of the media to get a glimpse of the distinctive green shirts accented in white and orange as they come off the presses at All Pro Embroidery.

Last year the T-shirt proved to be popular for Pittsburghers in the weeks leading up to the parade. While some purchase it to wear to the parade, others see it as a collectible.

This year’s clean shirt design, featuring a forestgreen shirt, showcases the iconic Pittsburgh skyline and the region’s Irish heritage.

For out of town parade supporters and others, T-shirts can be purchased online while those supplies last. AT THIS POINT, THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR SHIRT BEFORE THE PARADE.
