Parade

The 2020 Greenbelt Labor Day Festival Parade will take place on Monday, September 7, from 10am to noon. This year will mark the 65th year of the parade. The first parade took place in 1956 during the second year of the Greenbelt Labor Day Festival.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is uncertain as to whether or not we will be able to put on the Greenbelt Labor Day Festival and Parade. We are continuing to make plans to put on the Festival and Parade, but are holding off on making any firm commitments for the time being. I am guessing that we should know for sure one way or the other by the end of June. So, I recommend not submitting your parade registration until July 1st or later.
