Parade the Circle

For more than 25 years, the Cleveland Museum of Art's Parade the Circle has been a signature event for both the CMA and the community. An early signal of summer, this free, family friendly event combines art, music and culture from around the world. Each year, local artists, schools, community groups and families work with international and national guest artists to create and exhibit brightly colored costumes, handmade masks, giant puppets, stilt dancers and more. While the parade takes place around Wade Oval, the interior field transforms into Circle Village, with interactive activities, food, entertainment and giveaways. This year's Parade the Circle begins at noon on Saturday, June 11, rain or shine.
