It’s time for the 92nd annual Geauga County Maple Festival. Parades are on Saturday, April 29th and Sunday, April 30th in Chardon, Ohio. The parade theme this year is “Cherished Maple Sugar Memories”. We request that all float entries be done in accordance with the theme.
Both parades will begin at 3 PM sharp. Any individual or group may complete the entry form to participate. Commercial units will be assessed a fee of $40.00 per entry per day. No charge to non-profit organizations.
There will be judging and prizes awarded for Junior & Adult floats and Junior & Senior Marching groups for the units participating in both days' parades. Also for Antique/Classic Cars and Horse Divisions on both days.
You will be mailed a confirmation letter, about 10 days prior to the parade, which will include the designated area for the line-up and a map that will assist you. Line-up begins at 1:45 PM each day. We will have parade workers in golf carts available to assist you.
It is necessary that we receive your entry by April 10th to insure time to mail the line-up information back to you. Please do not hesitate to call with any questions or concerns that you may have. We look forward to having you join us.
