The Sussex County St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee is a non-profit organization that was created to plan, organize, fund, and manage the Sussex County St. Patrick’s Day Parade each year. Each year, a committee of elected members are responsible for parade operations. There is also an elected Grand Marshal, or Grand Marshals, who lead the Parade procession through Newton NJ. Year-round fundraising supports the cost of the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade.  Leftover parade funds are donated to the Chosen Charity of the year, which is chosen by the Grand Marshal(s).
