All Species Parade
The 2018 All Species Parade is
Saturday, September 15
1pm on the Arcata Plaza
Meet at 12:30 behind Tri-Counties Bank (corner of 8th & G Sts) to get ready!
The NEC will be hosting a mask-making workshop on Friday, September 14 at the Sanctuary (1301 J St, Arcata) during Arts!Alive, starting at 6pm. 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!
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.
