2017 Parade registration is open! Register today!

There’s always something exciting in the East Atlanta Strut Parade, the wackiest and most fun parade in East Atlanta. From marching bands to Darth Vader to neighborhood kids to dragons on wheels to the wondrous Queens of the Strut, the parade shows off everything there is to love about East Atlanta! The parade starts at 2:00 p.m. at Glenwood and Patterson Avenues. Get your viewing spot early!

Don’t want the parade to pass you by? TheParade has opened its call for entries. For the second year the parade is urging groups of neighbors to show off pride in their streets by joining the parade. Last year’s winner of the Street Strut — May Avenue — will be ready to take on all contenders.

Decorate your bicycle, car, truck or stroller — or just decorate yourself and put on your strutting shoes. Whether you want to have fun or want to spread the word about your group or business in a unique way, the Strut Parade is the way to go.

Strutting with a group is also a great way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or other milestone!



The Strut is run totally by volunteers, working throughout the year and on Strut day to bring you a great neighborhood festival. In addition to Strut day, volunteers are needed in the month before the festival and on the day after. Volunteers receive the delightful and collectible Strut T-shirts, a free wristband and access to the volunteer VIP area at The Union.

Duties include selling wristbands, working in the adult game area, staffing the children’s area, helping run the parade and working with festival setup or breakdown.

Please visit our volunteer signup page at to be a part! Please email if you have any questions. Thanks!


Want to do more than volunteer? Sponsor the Strut at the $50 Stroll level or make a tax-deductible donation in another amount here.
