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.
