The All Species Parade has been an NEC tradition since 1979. Each year, people of all ages come together at the North Country Fair and parade around the plaza dressed as their favorite critter to celebrate biodiversity and the equality of all life. Anyone can participate.

Participants meet in the Tri-Counties Bank parking lot (on the corner of 8th and G Streets) at 12:30 for the parade at 1pm. Organizations are encouraged to dress as matching critters. Check in later for our free workshop dates and times.

Mask Making Workshops:
The NEC will be hosting 3 mask making workshops leading up to the parade. We will have lots of materials available to use, but if you have something special or specific to your costume, please bring that as well!
