The Nain Rouge has been a harbinger of doom since the time of Detroit’s founding. Each year we hold a parade in the Cass Corridor to trick the Nain with our terrible French … and costumes.
At Mardi Gras, a krewe is any group that joins together to throw a ball or parade. At the Marche, our krewes build human-powered floats, perform music, coordinate themed costumes and represent their Detroit neighborhoods together. Register your group here and be part of the parade.
Have something to say to the Nain? Here’s your chance to add to the witty barbs we sling at him at the parade and on social media. Share your taunt with us here.
Help us keep the parade marche-ing through the Detroit. Your financial commitment to the Marche assists us in making this event one of Detroit’s best new-ish traditions where we can celebrate the city’s funky history and bright future together. Your donation is tax deductible! Donate here!
