Parade the Circle

It's an annual tradition for residents of the University Circle area to crowd Wade Oval in early June for Parade the Circle. Twenty-three years strong, this parade brings together art, music and entertainment together in one place.

Parade the Circle is known for its brightly colored floats and elaborately decorated performers. Stilt-walkers, dancers, musicians and giant puppets will parade down Wade Oval this Saturday. The parade provides national and international artists a chance to showcase their artistic talent through a variety of mediums.

The theme for this year's parade is "Branches Becomes Roots." The theme celebrates those who branch out yet retain ties to their family and community.

The parade will begin at the Cleveland Natural Museum of History and move in a clockwise direction along Wade Oval, before ending up back at the museum.

Activities, entertainment and food will be available after the parade in Circle Village for all attendees to enjoy.

Parade the Circle hours:
Saturday, June 9 from noon-4 p.m.
