Greek Independence Day Parade in Detroit

The historic Greektown district will be a sea of blue on April 6, 2014. Bring the family to check out the music, costumes and fun in store.

Be Greek for the day at the 13th annual Greek Independence Day Parade in Detroit, set for April 6, 2014! People of all ages will gather on Monroe Street in historic Greektown to see the procession of floats, local organizations, church groups and more.

The parade kicks off near the Compuware Building and proceeds down Monroe Street at Woodward Avenue until it reaches Greektown. Be sure to stick around after the parade for a post-parade ceremony, followed by Greek dancing.

There is a pre-parade open house at the Hellenic Museum of Michigan, which kicks off at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 5, followed by a gala reception and the Hellenic Heritage Awards at the Detroit Institute of Arts at 7 p.m. The funds raised from these festivities will benefit the Hellenic Museum of Michigan.

Don't forget to wear blue and white during the parade! It kicks off at 3 p.m., so be sure to head down a bit early. It's free to attend and, if you stick around for lunch, there are plenty of places in Greektown – including Pegasus Taverna and Santorini Estiatorio – to try a taste of Greece.

For the directions and the basic details on the Greek Independence Day Parade in Detroit, see the Metro Parent listing.
