Orange May Parade
SAVE THE DATE FOR THE 2023 ORANGE MAY PARADE!
May 6, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. in Historic Old Towne Orange
The Orange May Parade, originally called the May Festival Parade, was a fixture in the City of Orange from 1933 until its last march down Chapman Avenue in 1991. Originally, the parade marked the beginning of the Valencia orange packing season. It later evolved into a showcase of the many fine organizations that call the City of Orange home. Thousands of spectators lined the parade route to cheer on participants such as local schools, churches, businesses, and philanthropic organizations, instilling a sense of community and civic pride.
The Orange Chamber of Commerce is honored to have revived the decades-old tradition for the City of Orange in 2019 and again in 2022. The parade is a celebration of all that is unique about Orange and participation in the parade is an amazing opportunity.
We look forward to returning in 2023.
