Parade the Circle

The Cleveland Museum of Art sponsors Parade the Circle, which began in 1990 with a small number of artists and has since grown to become a major event, drawing crowds in the tens of thousands to University Circle every June. Parade the Circle offers excellent opportunities for people of all ages to show their creativity by becoming a part of the parade - banging on drums, riding on intricately designed floats, or sporting their own hand-made costumes.
