The “Parade through Macao, Latin City” is a cultural event that unfolds as a procession through the streets of Macao. Created in 2011, the Parade is held annually on December 20th to mark the anniversary of Macao’s Handover to China. Every year, several foreign performing groups as well as hundreds of talented local artists are invited to be creative participants. They lead the residents and tourists on this adventure through Macao’s streets and alleyways and bring songs and dances to the city’s historical quarters. The Parade, which highlights Macao’s unique cultural features and the City’s multicultural atmosphere, culminates in a grand joint performance in which the artists present dazzlingly colourful performances, bringing the celebration of this joyous occasion to a vivid climax.

The “Parade through Macao, Latin City” is organised by the Cultural Affairs Bureau and co-organised by several other governmental departments, with valuable support from various other organisations, bringing the whole community together.
