Mexican Independence Day Parade


Viva Mexico!

After a long two-year hiatus, the parade is back with an emphasis on unity and strength. The 2022 Little Village Chamber of Commerce Mexican Independence Day will take place on Sunday, September 11, 2022 and this years parade theme is, “ Nuestra Unidad es Nuestra Fortaleza,” or “Our Unity is Our Strength,” which serves as a reminder that our culture and unity as a community holds strong.

The 26th Street Mexican Independence Day Parade is considered one of the largest parades in the midwest and brings together over 500,000 participants, residents and visitors along the two-and half-mile business corridor. The parade features brightly colored floats, mariachi bands, and folkloric dancing starting at the iconic Little Village, located on 26th Street and Albany Avenue and proceeds down 26th street to Kostner Avenue down 26th Street. The parade is attended and enjoyed by residents, elected officials, community leaders, local businesses, entertainers, artisans, and artists.
