Hillsborough Handmade Parade

Churton & King St
Hillsborough, NC 27278
Dates: June 1, 2024
Time: 4:00 PM

The Handmade Parade is a biannual Hillsborough tradition and grassroots, community celebration! This Mardi Gras-style street parade is fueled by the community and includes painted faces, wild costumes, puppets (small & massive), stilt-walkers, marching bands, and much more, creating a spectacle of art, creativity, public theater, and music! We invite all community members, whether you come with a paper-bag puppet; a sock puppet; or a giant, recycled, Papier-mâché grasshopper, to craft your creative addition to this community show and march with us in celebration of art and creativity!
