Making an Impact Across the community

The Irish-American Cultural Society of Stamford (IACSOS) was formed to celebrate the American immigration story and the positive influence Irish people have on our community.  From civic, religious, philanthropic and business leaders, to noteworthy musicians, dancers, artists and writers, and gifted people with talents of every kind, the tapestry that is our community is woven with vibrant and rich threads of immigrants who have made an indelible mark on our culture and our lives.

One of the many ways the IACSOS makes an impact in the Stamford community and beyond each year is by bringing together tens of thousands of people from the city and region to The Stamford St. Patrick’s Day Grand Marshal’s Dinner and Parade.  These truly inclusive events celebrate the coming of spring and the fact that “everybody is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!”


2022 Parade Grand Marshal

Roger J. Fox, who was born and raised in Stamford, and is Senior Vice President of Wealth Management at Merrill Lynch. Roger has been a longstanding supporter of youth athletics and Catholic education, and traces his Irish heritage back through the Fox, Haggerty, Kerrigan and Thomes families.

Former Parade Chairman

James P. Bartley, posthumously. Jim co-chaired the first-ever St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee meeting and went on to become the parade’s second-ever chairman, leading it for 12 years. We owe Jim a great debt of gratitude for his hard work and leadership on behalf of the Parade, and we intend to repay a small part of that debt by celebrating him during the Grand Marshal Dinner.
