Gold Cup Parade

Friday, August 17

A feature event of The Old Home Week Festival. Come celebrate the prestigious Gold Cup Parade, the largest street parade in eastern Canada!

The Gold Cup and Saucer Race (1960) and The Gold Cup Parade (1962) were founded by Frank Acorn and Bill Hancox with the purpose of reviving Old Home Week, focusing attention on PEI's harness racing industry, and providing exciting entertainment for both Islanders and summer visitors. The Parade has been every year since that time and has become the feature event of summer season on the Island!

Every year, hundreds of entries wind their way through downtown featuring to the delight of children of all ages. The Parade features marching bands, floats, antique cars, giant balloons, clowns, and horses – there is something for everyone!
