Gemuetlichkeit Days Parade

Starting at Noon on Sunday, September 17, 2023

Gemuetlichkeit Days has one of the finest parades in southern Wisconsin.

 The parade will take place on Sunday, September 17th, 2023 at noon.

We have floats from many area businesses, civic & service groups and clubs as well as youth organizations. Prize money and certificates are awarded for first, second and third place in a variety of categories. The parade is open to any and all who wish to apply. As long as you follow the simple rules and meet our broad entry criteria, you are welcome to join us for a great hometown style parade. The entry deadline is August 27, 2023

You will receive your line up number about a week or two before the parade. Parade entrants line up on the south side of Jefferson.

We ask that you do NOT stop or park on the parade route when you turn right on Wilson Street at the end of the parade. Please park and stop on side streets off of Wilson Street. Thank you.
