About the Parade

Themed around the cultures of countries and regions along the Belt and Road, this year’s edition of the Macao International Parade invited performing groups from these regions as well as extraordinary local artists to sing and dance in their distinctive costumes and styles along streets of rich cultural interest bustling with animation. Highlighting the unique landscape of the Historic Centre of Macao and engaging residents and tourists in the festive atmosphere, the groups will spread the concept of “Love, Peace and Cultural Integration”, turning the Parade into one of the largest events celebrating the Macao Handover to China!
