UNFORTUNATELY, The Marche du Nain Rouge has been canceled for March 22, 2020, in response to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

MARCHE DU NAIN ROUGE

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.

BRING THE KREWE

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 and be part of the parade below.

TAUNT THE NAIN

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 below.
