The best and one of the largest horse parades east of the Mississippi River is making a return visit to Delaware next Sunday.

The 2023 All Horse Parade is set to start at 3:00 PM at the Delaware County Fairgrounds. As in past years, the parade will then travel east on Pennsylvania Avenue, south on Sandusky Street, west on Winter Street, north on Liberty Street, west on Lincoln Avenue, and then north on Euclid Avenue back to the Fairgrounds.

The total parade route is approximately 2.3 miles. An online map can be viewed here.

Recognized as one of the largest and most unique non-motorized parades in the U.S., it will include over 140 units including 450 horses, mules and donkeys, along with wagons, carriages and bands. Typically, some 60,000 spectators line the streets.

For more information, please contact 740.272.7636.

The All Horse Parade is traditionally held on the Sunday immediately preceding the start of the Delaware County Fair.
