JCI Brantford and the City of Brantford have partnered to bring you a once-a-generation celebration! As you know our great nation turns 150 years young in 2017, and because of our years of experience with the JCI Brantford Santa Claus Parade, the City of Brantford approached JCI Brantford to bring their dream of a special summer parade to life for the citizens of Brantford and beyond.
On June 3, 2017 starting at the Civic Centre and proceeding up the hill and ending at Harmony Square, the daytime Brantford Celebrates Canada's 150 Parade will include many favourite bands and entries, but in a different setting. 
There's still time to enter and there's no cost to participate. We hope to see you out there in your red and white waving to the crowds, or cheering on the floats as they pass by. To register, please visit Brantford Celebrates 150
 to enter a group or float. For any questions or concerns, please reach out to the Brantford Celebrates Canada's 150 Parade chair, Michelle Giffin at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Canada150 Registration


100% FREE


We will advertise for your during the parade on TV - but you have to tell us what you want us to say, otherwise it won't as effective.  Please write our script so that you get the coverage that you want.


Size Matters

The marshalling area must be arranged so that no driveway is blocked.  This means we need accurate measurements - especially for large tractors - or else we can not line you up properly as you will block a driveway.
