2023 May Fete Parade Theme

"Empowering Wellness through Community"

We are excited to announce the May Fete Children's parade is back this year for its 99th year! The May Fete parade will be held Saturday, May 6th at 10:00am along University Avenue. Gather your family or friends and show off your float making skills and take-home big prizes! Showcase your group, team, neighborhood or extracurricular activity. No group? No problem! Walk with the City of Palo Alto's Friends, Family and Pets category, we'd love to have you!

We are also looking for Teen Volunteers to help with day-of-tasks for the Parade. If you are interested or know anybody that is, please fill out our Teen Volunteer Application.
