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.

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!
