Save the Date: Greek Heritage Parade on May 22
Our neighborhood is excited to host an in-person celebration of the 200th anniversary of Greek Independence on Sunday, May 22, 2022 at 2:30 p.m. with the Greek Heritage Parade, presented by The Federation of Hellenic-American Organizations (ENOSIS). This parade, celebrating the rich Hellenic identity and culture in Chicago, returns to Halsted Street after last year’s virtual celebration.
The Greek Heritage Parade has been established as one of the biggest annual events in the Chicago Greek community since its founding in the 1960s. During this parade celebration, visitors can see colorful traditional costumes and hear historical Greek melodies as the community officially celebrates the 200th anniversary of Greek Independence.
Greektown will be bustling with activity on May 22 – including the Greek Heritage Parade, the Greektown Agora (Greek for “marketplace”), a performance by Orpheus Dance Troupe dancers and more!
