STATEMENT from Savannah St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee

We understand that the City of Savannah is not issuing any special event permits through March
2021. As a result, we will not have the 2021 Savannah St. Patrick's Day Parade. While this is
disappointing, we are confident in the City's decision. Our tap priority hos always been ta ensure
the health, safety and welfare of parade participants and attendees.

After the 2020 parade cancellation, we were hopeful for 2021 and we had applied for the
special event permit. Over the post several months we hove continued to work with the City of
Savannah during the permitting process and now we need ta be united in doing what is best for
our community. Since the first Savannah St. Patrick's Day Parade in 1824, there have been
extraordinary times when we had to cancel the parade, and this is unfortunately one of those
times. Going forward, we commit to keep you aware of our future plans and we appreciate the
community's understanding and support.

General Chairman, Savannah St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee
