The Parade of Nations strives to promote worldwide culture and national awareness in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula through a community-wide annual event that includes a parade and a multicultural festival.

The parade begins at 11 a.m., making its way through Hancock across the Portage Lake Lift Bridge to Houghton. Everyone is invited to march with their country.

The procession winds up at Dee Stadium, an historic waterfront venue transformed into a global marketplace featuring dozens of food and craft booths and performers from around the world. No-cost children’s activities and meals averaging in the $5–8 price range make this an affordable-yet-exotic family experience.
