Maryland Greek Independence Day Parade 2018 Sunday March 25, 2018 | Greektown | Baltimore, MD
Colorful, traditional costumes and ethnic pride of both young and old will fill the streets of Baltimore on Sunday, March 25, 2018 at 2:00 PM, as the Greek-American Community commemorates Greek Independence Day with a festive parade in Baltimore's historic Greektown.
We mark the 197th year since Greece's declaration of independence from Ottoman Turkish rule. Greeks and Philhellenes gather on this solemn, yet joyous, occasion to remember our ancestors' sacrifices in defeating the tyranny of slavery. They protected and preserved the ideals of Greece, the birthplace of Freedom and Democracy. Greek Independence Day is celebrated in every corner of the world and we bear the responsibilities as our Greek and Philhellenic forefathers did to further this legacy. We welcome one and all -- especially, our children, inheritors of our traditions and future guarantors of these ideals. (more)
