Celebrating 70 Years of Tayto: Join Mr. Tayto at the National St. Patrick’s Day Parade!

As Tayto marks its remarkable 70-year journey as the original Irish crisp, there’s no better way to celebrate this milestone than with an unforgettable appearance by Mr. Tayto himself at the National St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin.

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is not just a local event; it’s a global celebration of Irish arts, culture, and heritage. This year’s parade, emphasizing joy, community, diversity, and sustainability, promises to be the grandest yet, with more pageants, participants, and laughter. And at the heart of it all, Mr. Tayto will be there, urging the nation to kick off the festivities in style!

Tayto holds a special place in the hearts of the Irish, even among those who have left their homeland. Synonymous with Irish culture and heritage, Mr. Tayto embodies the parade’s theme of ‘Spréach’ (Spark), bringing joy and nostalgia to audiences worldwide. His presence in the parade is a tribute to Tayto’s enduring legacy and the countless moments of happiness it has brought to families over the years.

Richard Tierney, CEO of St. Patrick’s Festival, expressed his honor in having Mr. Tayto join the parade once again: “For many families and individuals, Tayto was a significant part of their lives growing up, and even now! Their transition is sure to ignite a spark of nostalgia and joy for our audience.”

But the celebrations don’t stop there. Tayto is pulling out all the stops for its 70th anniversary. This summer, the brand will embark on a nationwide 70th Birthday Roadshow, showcasing highlights from its seven decades of history. The ‘Tay70’ birthday showcase promises an unforgettable experience, featuring interactive games, memorabilia, and fun activities for all ages.

Join us in celebrating 70 years of Tayto at the National St. Patrick’s Day Parade and beyond. Let’s make this anniversary a truly memorable one!
