St. George’s Day Celebrations

St. George slays the dragon

St. George’s Day remembers St. George, England’s patron saint, on the anniversary of his death (23rd April). Every year, St. George’s Society of New York celebrates St. George’s Day with our members and extended community in the New York metropolitan area through a variety of events as well as collaborations with NYC-based British businesses and the hosts of England Day NYC.
