DETROIT, MI – America’s Thanksgiving Parade will return this November 25 to on Woodward Ave., Detroit, and is accepting volunteers.

Each year, hundreds of thousands of visitors are flocking at Woodward Avenue to watch the giant floats, vibrant balloons, marching bands, and all sorts of performance acts on Thanksgiving morning.

“Our remarkable team works tirelessly to create a world-class parade for the millions of Detroiters and viewers watching across the country. We are also fortunate to have great sponsors and partners who help us celebrate Detroit in the national spotlight,” said Tony Michaels, president & CEO of The Parade Company, organizers of the parade.

The company was founded in 1982, governed by key civic and corporate leaders representing the primary industrial, retail, automotive, and institutional organizations, especially from the greater Detroit community.

Annually, the company includes a volunteer corps of 1,500 dedicated individuals to help to stage America’s Thanksgiving Parade under the supervision of its full-time management staff of event, marketing, and creative professionals.

As part of the Thanksgiving festivities since 1924, the parade is one of the country’s largest and most spectacular Parades in the United States. It has become part of the holiday tradition for Motor City residents. Usually, the troops will start marching from the corner of Kirby and Woodward at 8:45 a.m.

The parade was named the Best Holiday Parade in America by the USA TODAY 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards for two years in a row in 2018 and 2019. Produced by The Parade Company, the Detroit’s iconic Thanksgiving parade is broadcasted in more than 185 television markets across the country.

The parade is currently accepting applications for volunteers and performers, mainly for the Dance Team, the Equestrian Unit, and the Marching Band. You can visit this page for more info.
