Handmade Parade 2022

April 30, 2022

The Handmade Parade is a biannual Hillsborough tradition and grassroots, community celebration! This Mardi Gras-style street parade is fueled by the community and includes painted faces, wild costumes, puppets (small & massive), stilt-walkers, marching bands, and much more, creating a spectacle of art, creativity, public theater, and music!

The theme for the 2022 parade is FOUND OBJECT ART. We invite all community members, whether you come with a paper-bag puppet; a sock puppet; or a giant, recycled, Papier-mâché grasshopper, to craft your creative addition to this community show and march with us in celebration of art and creativity!

We’ll be hosting community workshops in preparation for the event, so stay tuned for workshop details and teaching artist announcements! To be notified of ongoing HAC announcements, be sure to join our network by signing up for the HAC Newsletter or by following us on social media!
