Each year, 1Berkshire collaborates with the city of North Adams to host a festive, inclusive, and vibrant downtown parade celebrating all things autumnal in the Berkshires. The entire community is invited to participate in this beloved event, which takes place on the first Sunday of October.

2022 Theme: Holidays on Parade
This fall, the annual parade celebrates a fun theme honoring all your favorite holidays. We’re honoring every holiday, from Valentine’s Day, New Year’s, National Ice Cream Day, Halloween, and everything in between! Interpret this theme however you like in your float, costume, and more!

Parade Route and Program

This year’s parade route is 1.2 miles and mostly flat, making the parade more walkable for all ages and abilities. The shorter parade route is also less of a time commitment for participants.

NEW Starting Point: Intersection of State Street and Old State Street
Lineup: Curran Highway between DiSanti Field (north point) to United Cerebral Palsy (south point); roughly 400 Curran Highway to 535 Curran Highway
Ending Point: Intersection of Ashland Street and Washington Ave, same as last year.
NOTE: Due to the new starting location and staging area, through traffic is able to detour on Old State Street to access parts of Curran Highway. The road will be fully shut down along the parade route starting at 12:30 pm.
