Thank you to all parade participants​​

    The Worcester Columbus Day Parade is a one-mile march down Shrewsbury Street on Sunday, October 7, 2018 at 12:30 pm.   The parade starting point is at the corner of Aitchison Street and Shrewsbury Street and ends at Washington Square near Union Station.

      The Mission of the Worcester Columbus Day Parade Committee is to uphold an annual Italian tradition which delights the community as well as the City of Worcester.  The Worcester Columbus Day Parade is a time to honor and celebrate and remember our Italian ancestors that despite extreme adversity, prejudice, and suffering upon arriving in this country, showed determination and strength to not only build successful lives for themselves and their families, but also to contribute in building a strong and successful nation that honors and respects people of all nations. 

     The Worcester Columbus Day Parade Committee has proudly evolved into a multicultural celebration. Parade participants demonstrates their cultures, heritage and accomplishments, as part of our multicultural City of Worcester. 

     "Family" is the key word of this event. The sole mission of the Worcester Columbus Day Parade Committee is to plan and present a family oriented event, as we welcome all community groups and organizations to participate. The Worcester Columbus Day Parade Committee is a non-profit 501(c)3 volunteer organization.  

    The Worcester Columbus Day Parade Committee reserves the right to select participants that demonstrates the family goals.
