New York City’s 48th Annual

Village Halloween Parade

Watch the Parade LIVE on NY1 at 7 pm Sunday, October 31, 2021 | Presented by NY1

The nation’s most wildly creative public participatory event in the greatest city in the world!



Volunteer to Animate a Giant Puppet or to Marshal the Parade!

Whether you are a veteran of previous parades, or a newcomer who wants to see the Parade from the inside this year, we welcome you to join us.

There are TWO ways to be part of the magic:

  • perform by animating a puppet
  • or help with production, crowd control, and procession by being a parade Marshal

No previous experience with 20 foot tall glowing caterpillars or bullhorns is necessary.

You can also help us to build the Giant Puppets that lead the procession every year. See the Workshop Schedule under Artistry.

Sign Up to Volunteer HERE!
