Sponsorship Opportunity

The Celebrate Northeast Parade is organized by the Northeast Minneapolis Chamber and will celebrate its 90th anniversary in 2019. Each year approximately 5,000 people watch the parade, 100 entrants participate and 100 volunteers coordinate parade activities. The parade is broadcast live on community television and re-broadcast multiple times in the weeks following the event. Parade promotion is extensive and without sponsors, the annual Celebrate Northeast Parade would not be possible.
