The Big Parade is an art- and community-based parade. It is not only an important and beloved Oberlin tradition, it is the largest artistic collaboration between college and community. Come join the big fun!
Our mission is to build and celebrate our community through artistic expression. We strive to spark creativity and teamwork and to benefit our audience, participants and wider community.
The 14th annual event travels west on College Street and spills into Tappan Square for art, music, dancing, costumes, bike floats, food and more. Local acts will perform in Clark Bandstand
