Each year the parade kicks off at 10:30 AM on Saturday morning, and brings to life the emotion and imagery you find in a Norman Rockwell painting. This annual tradition embodies small town life, and does so in grand fashion by bringing the community together for a fun-filled morning.
Come out and enjoy a little slice of Americana and be part of the excitement! See your old friends, make some new ones, and take in all that Matthews has to offer!
The parade begins on Matthews-Mint Hill Road, at McLeod Street. It moves forward to Trade Street, turns left (at Kristopher’s restaurant), continues straight through downtown Matthews on Trade Street, through the Festival, and concludes at the Matthews United Methodist Church.
Find a shady spot and enjoy the sights!
