The Maindee Festival street parade is a wild and colourful celebration of our diverse local cultures. Everyone get dressed up and take to the streets to head for the Festival site. They are supported by giant figures and bands of musicians. It is a real spectacle. Go to our picture section to see previous year's parades.
The theme of this year’s parade is “Seeds of Change”
