  • Montrose Ave.
  • Irving Park Rd.
  • Addison St.
  • Grace St.
  • Roscoe St.
  • Wellington Ave.

PARADE INFORMATION: The parade will feature 200 registered entries including floats, decorated vehicles, performance groups, a marching band and walking contingents. The entries represent community organizations, businesses, governmental officials and individual community members. Crowd estimates each year are in the hundreds of thousands. The parade route will be lined with barricades on both sides of the street from beginning to the end of the parade route. Spectators will be required to remain behind the barricades. (Only parade registrants traveling down the middle of the street, police officers, other city officials, parade marshals and credentialed media reps will be allowed in the street).

After stepping off at 12:00 PM, the parade will take approximately two and one-half hours to finish crossing the Broadway & Montrose corner. After this time, the floats will still be winding their way to the end of the parade route at Diversey & Sheridan.  Police officers along with the parade marshals will be present along the route.

This year there will NOT be a Buffer Zone on Halsted Street after the parade ends. Police will work to re-open the streets to vehicular traffic as soon as cleaning crews are finished and the streets will not remain open to foot traffic. The streets on the parade route will begin to be cleaned by Streets and Sanitation immediately after the last float has passed.  Streets and Sanitation will continue to clean the residential side streets through the end of Monday, June 25th.

Alcohol consumption WILL NOT be tolerated under any circumstances. Open containers containing alcohol are illegal on the streets and sidewalks in Chicago. You will be subject to receiving a costly ticket and/or arrest from the Chicago Police Department.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION: The parade route accommodates several CTA El Stations.  Please look at the map below.  The Wilson, Sheridan and Addison stations all provide convenient access via a short walk to the parade route.  From the Brown Line, the Wellington and Diversey Stations provide convenient access as well.

Please note that the area around Belmont has historically been very crowded, so we urge you to consider areas near the new start of the parade route, such as Broadway Avenue south of Montrose.

The following bus routes will be rerouted:
