2022 Greek Independence Day Parade
Celebrating freedom and heroism!
The HCGM annual Greek Independence Day Parade will be held on Sunday, March 27th, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. in the Parc-Extension borough. The spectators will attend this unique annual event where Montrealers of Greek descent will patriotically wave their Canadian, Quebec and Greek flags and show their colours with great pride. The Parade will showcase many groups, including all HCGM Schools and Departments, Greek associations, educational institutions, and various cultural communities. The groups will consist of 10 to 12 people to respect the current health guidelines.
Greek or not, bring your flags and get ready to pay tribute to the history, the heroism and the independence of the nation that started it all. The HCGM continues the more-than-40-year-old tradition of organising a series of commemorative events whereby Montrealers celebrate Greek Independence Day:
