In 1959, the United Irish Societies, sponsored the first St. Patrick’s Parade in Dearborn, MI. The Parade route follows along Michigan Avenue through the area known as Corktown. Corktown received it’s name as the Irish were the largest ethnic group of newcomers to Detroit, most of them from County Cork. The Corktown neighborhood is Detroit’s oldest surviving neighborhood.
