Greek Independence Day Parade

The annual Detroit Greek Independence Day Parade is Sunday, March 26 at 3:00 p.m. ET, and marks the sixteenth year of the parade that celebrates Greece and Greek-American culture in Detroit. This year, the parade coincides with Greek Independence Day, the national holiday celebrated annually in Greece on March 25, commemorating the start of the War of Greek Independence in 1821.

The family-friendly event features more than 40 parade participants, including traditional Greek dancers and musicians, floats by schools and businesses, church and non-profit groups, collegiate groups and Michigan State University’s “Sparty.” This year’s parade will also feature official characters from The Parade Company Big Head Corp.

1:30 p.m. – Pre-Parade Dignitary Reception, press preview and dance performance inside the Atheneum Hotel. (Note: Parade staging and unit placement will take place in front of the Compuware Building.)

3:00 p.m. – The Detroit Greek Independence Day Parade kicks off and travels up Monroe Street and through the historic Greektown district.

4:30 p.m. – After the parade, there will be a closing ceremony followed by celebrations and dancing in the streets!
