Event description

Description

Come one! Come all! We are having a parade! The event is a fabulous parade of people from around the globe celebrating the diversity and multi-culturalism of our area. It isn't a traditional parade, but an informal promenade around the festival site, culminating in our welcome ceremony.


Individuals and organizations in ethnic dress representing countries from around the world are invited to join in the parade. Colorful non-ethnic community groups are also welcome. If your organization or group would like to come and march, or individuals would like to march to support multi-culturalism and refugees, please join us!

Come in traditional dress
Bring flags or banners (but no political statements please) that announce your group's name


**This is a walking parade. NO VEHICLES ARE ALLOWED. The festival site isn’t wide enough for vehicles. If you have recorded music you must put it in a battery operated boombox on a cart. Live music is encouraged.


WHERE to COME: Gather at 1:00 for a 1:30 parade at the parking lot of 51 Mannakee Street next to the festival site (Montgomery College, Rockville).

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL: The World of Montgomery Festival is an annual event
