American Royal

American Royal Parade at Arrowhead Stadium 

While still retaining its iconic traditions, The American Royal Parade will take place at Arrowhead Stadium on Saturday October 3, 2015 
during the World Series of Barbecue. The move will not only enhance the Parade Experience for Kansas City attendees, but it will
also serve as an opportunity to introduce The American Royal Parade to an entirely new audience from across the country.

Beginning at 10 AM, the Parade will feature active duty military and veterans, saddle clubs, Boy Scouts, 4-H, FFA, as well as cars, trucks,
marching bands and large balloons, and serve as a kickoff to the American Royal Cowtown Family Fun Fest. Bring your family and friends
as the American Royal honors both our military and 116 years of tradition in Kansas City.  Check in and staging will begin at 8:00 am.

Free parking and no admission charge for Parade spectators.
