We invite you to join us as at the 18th Annual Detroit Greek Independence Day Parade in historic Greektown, Detroit, on Sunday, April 14.
One hundred and ninety-eight years ago, on March 25, 1821, our ancestors in Greece declared independence from the Ottoman Empire, re-establishing freedom and democracy in our beloved country. To observe and celebrate Greek Independence Day, communities throughout the world hold parades each year. The Detroit Greek Independence Day Parade, now in its 18th year, is one of the largest cultural parades in the United States, with thousands of Hellenes from Michigan, Ohio and Canada gathering in Greektown for the celebration.
