Portland Starlight Parade

A free annual event through the streets of downtown Portland. Oregon Humane Society’s float will feature the Royal Canine Court. One of our most popular events, the Portland General Electric/SOLVE Starlight Parade offers funky, eclectic fun for everyone. From traditional marching bands and flood-lit floats, to glow-in-the-dark umbrellas and unique hand-built entries, you’ll see the best of Portland’s diverse community groups (and surrounding Northwest region) together in one whimsical pageant. 2019 makes for an exciting Starlight Parade as it celebrates more than 40 years in the city of Portland!

The Starlight Parade continues a longtime festival tradition from the early 1900s, when illuminated floats built on electric trolley cars made their way through the city on trolley tracks. Today, participants light up the night with approximately 100 illuminated entries along a 2.25-mile route. The parade draws more than 325,000 spectators to downtown Portland, and is also broadcast live from 9:00 – 11:00 p.m. on FOX 12. Don’t miss the fun of one of the Rose Festival’s best and brightest traditions!

The Portland General Electric/SOLVE Starlight Parade will begin at 8:30 p.m. on June 1, 2019.
