Parade Participation

PLEASE NOTE: The parade lineup will be announced and found here on April 23.

All participants will be notified by email when the lineup is announced. Parade lineups are subject to change frequently. Please check back often to ensure your placement is correct.


Thousands of spectators line the streets of downtown Holland to watch amazing marching bands, Dutch Dancers, floats and numerous organizations present their finest in over two miles of pure celebration. Participation in the Tulip Time Festival parades is a great way for an organization, marching band, or company to “Join the Dance” in one of the nation’s Top 100 festivals. The Festival parades are some of the largest and most spectacular events in Michigan.


Thursday, May 9, 2024

People from near and far will be invited to don their Dutch costumes, grab a bucket and a broom, and scrub the streets clean for the coming performances. Local elementary school children in full costume and smiling faces march together (each school and grade will have their own theme that nods to the towns’ Dutch heritage). Floats, bands, organizations and businesses join in with their Tulip Time inspired entries for an awesome celebration.
