This local parade is a time-honored tradition here in New Albany and so we are humbled that we get a chance to be a part of it.

The 411 on the Upcoming New Albany Parade
Held every year, the New Albany Founder’s Day celebrates the inception of our incredible community.
Founded in 1837, the Village of New Albany has seen immense growth in the last two decades in particular as local leaders have focused on making this a great place to not only live but also to work and play as well. The Village became a City in 2011!
This year’s event (which, by the way, marks the 40th anniversary) will actually kick off with a mini-concert by the New Albany Chorus at Main Street and High Street.
Then, the parade starts at 11 a.m. Parade floats enter at Dublin-Granville Road and Morgan Road, although probably the best place to stand as a spectator will be Main Street and High Street because a parade emcee booth will be located there.
Check out this online map for a look at the complete parade map and to plan your excursion on Founder’s Day.
Ultimately, the parade will end at the New Albany 2-5 Elementary School at 87 North High Street.
This year is sure to be a stand-out one, especially given all of the sponsors that have contributed to bring the parade to life. These companies include The City of New Albany, New Albany Chamber of Commerce, Plain Township, New Albany-Plain Local Schools, Chi Thai Restaurant and Mint Family Dental.
Meanwhile, Robert & Debbie Dean will serve as the 2015 Parade Grand Marshals.
Here a quick recap of the most important details you should know:
- When: 10:45 a.m. for the mini-concert, 11 a.m. for the parade
- Where: Main Street and High Street
