Saturday, December 1 downtown Greensboro– Free Parade. Bands, Floats, Balloons and more! Join us for this year’s Greensboro Holiday Parade on Saturday, December 1 – rain or shine. The parade kicks off at noon!

For four decades, the Greensboro Holiday Parade has brought bands, huge Macy-style balloons (the only opportunity to see these in North Carolina and within 300 miles of Greensboro!) and the community together to enjoy holiday spirit!


The Greensboro Holiday Parade has been a downtown tradition for almost 40 years. The Parade features huge Macy’s style balloons and is the only Parade in North Carolina to feature these great attractions which have been featured in countries such as Belgium, Israel, Mexico and many other locations!

The parade averages over 60,000 spectators who also enjoy professional floats, dance and drill teams and the area’s best middle school, high school and college bands as they march along the streets of downtown Greensboro.

The Greensboro Holiday Parade is a part of Downtown in December, presented by Allegacy Federal Credit Union!
