On Sunday, March 26, 2017, join 6,000 revelers to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the departure of the Nain Rouge, the fiendish imp intent on ruining Detroit. But don’t wait until Sunday to start the fun – Marche events happen all week long!
The Main Event
All are invited to join in the Marche, a parade made up of the citizens of Detroit. No registration required – just show up and join in the celebration.
What you need to know:
This year, we kick off at noon at the main stage with a program of poetry, music, and carney revelry. Check it out!
The Marche du Nain Rouge proper begins at 1 p.m. at the intersection of Canfield St. and Second Ave., as revelers celebrate the spring equionox and lay a solid groundwork for hope for the upcoming year, just in case the Nain should try something dastardly.
This year, the Marche is back on Cass Avenue!
Revelers are encouraged to come masked or fully costumed; groups are encouraged to join in the fun with DIY chariots. CASH PRIZES will be presented to Detroit neighborhood groups with the best floats! Information coming soon.
There is no cost, just come out and have a good time.
When the parade is done, stick around for the after parties!
