HANDMADE PARADE

SATURDAY, APRIL 30, 2022

HISTORIC SITE

Handmade Parade is a grassroots, Mardi Gras-style street parade featuring wild costumes,  painted faces, puppets (small & giant), stilt-walkers, marching bands, dancers, and so much more.

We invite all community members, whether you come with a paper-bag puppet or a giant, cardboard & Papier-mâché grasshopper, to craft your creative addition to the community show and join us to dance in the streets of Hillsborough for the Weekend of Art!

This year, Handmade Parade will end in Hillsborough's River Park, joining with Handmade Market, for end-of-parade jamboree and celebrations.
