The Columbus Day Parade is returning to the streets of Cleveland’s Little Italy neighborhood on Monday, Oct. 11. The parade is coming back after a 2020 hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It will feature elaborate floats, marching bands, local artifacts and city leaders. It will be held along Mayfield and Murray Hill roads.

After the parade, attendees are encouraged to visit the newly opened Italian American Museum of Cleveland. Mass will be held prior to the parade at Holy Rosary Church on Mayfield Road at 10 a.m. Cleveland’s Columbus Day Parade and related celebrations date back to 1920 when several Italian American enclaves across the city paid homage to the 15th-Century Italian explorer.
