Birmingham Hometown Parade and Party in Shain Park

Theme: OUTDOOR ADVENTURES
A Celebration of the Great Outdoors!
The annual Celebrate Birmingham Hometown Parade will be on Sunday, May 15, 2016. Come join the festivities by marching in the parade, sponsoring a specialty unit, volunteering, or just watching the parade.
Park activities for the kids will be returning this year. All activities will be held in Shain Park immediately following the parade.
Route: The Parade will begin at 1:00 p.m. in downtown Birmingham. The parade will start on South Old Woodward at Daines. It will travel north on Old Woodward, west on Maple, south on Bates and end in Shain Park. View the parade route and parking locations.
Street Closure: Please note that parking will not be available along the parade route. View the street closures.
Participants: Please complete the Participation Form by April 29th. A confirmation letter with your parade position will be sent to you during the second week of May. Veterans please register here too!
Sponsors: Please complete the Sponsorship Form and return it by April 17th. With the generous support of area businesses and citizens this long-standing family event would not be possible.
Volunteers: We are always in need of energetic helpers who want to have a role in this community event. Duties include but are not limited to, assisting in the planning of the parade, public relations, and parade-day fun (actually lining up the parade participants and marching with banners!). There is something for everyone!
For further information, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at 248.530.1880.
