Experience the Parade!
The George Washington Birthday Parade is held annually on the third Monday in February. It winds through a one-mile route along the historic streets of Old Town. It is the oldest and largest parade celebrating the birth of George Washington in the USA, thanks to thousands of participants and spectators. More programs scheduled throughout the birthday weekend make it the cornerstone of a month of celebratory events. You can view (and download) a map of the Parade Route in the Parade Logistics section below.
