The Parades

Chief Joseph Days Grand Parade

On Saturday morning at 10:00 you will find thousands of spectators crowding the sidewalks of Joseph to watch close to 100 entries in the grand parade at Chief Joseph Days!

You won’t want to miss the colorful parade including Native Americans, the Grand Marshall, our royalty Court and visiting Courts, community entries, lots of horses, and more. The big parade always attracts the largest concentration of people in one place at one time during the celebration.

Make sure you don’t park your vehicles on the parade route down Main Street, or it will be towed away.
