Join the Green and Gold Day Parade!


Walk and Roll

However you move, bring your green and gold flair to this year’s Green and Gold Day Parade!


When: Friday, September 13
Time: Noon - 12:30 p.m.
Where: North Campus (map)

U of A faculties, departments, units, student groups/clubs, associations and teams are all welcome and encouraged to join. Entries can range from walking groups to home-made floats to marching bands and more. However you display your green and gold spirit, be sure to bring it to the parade!

All entrants will be eligible to win the Green and Gold Cup (not to mention some well-earned bragging rights). Selected by a guest panel of judges, the cup will be awarded to the entry that puts the most enthusiasm and creativity on display.

Parade Ideas

Here are a few ideas to consider when planning your parade entry:

  • Entries should be decorated to match the green and gold theme
  • Carts, wagons and bikes are allowed
  • As long as you double check with Risk Management, tame animals with experienced handler(s) are welcome
  • Musical instruments and music are allowed
  • Banners, flags and balloon displays can be included

Parade Don'ts

Given the limitations of our pathways (and safety concerns) there are a few things that you can't include in your parade entry:

  • Fire—no open flames
  • Anything explosive
  • No fire arms
  • Cars or trucks
  • Recognition and advertising of corporate or community sponsors (i.e. non-U of A sponsors) on parade entries can be submitted for approval; however, approval is not guaranteed.
