Known as the twisted sister of the conventional Rose Parade, the Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade is back to Old Pasadena in 2023!
On Doo Dah day, the street will swell with a memorable cast of local eccentrics, dissenters, pundits, lone wolfs, steam punks, and merrymakers.
- Come early, bring a lawn chair and visit the local eateries and shops, and attend the after parties all within walking distance.
- Popular food trucks will be selling tasty treats at food stands along the parade route.
The Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade began as a grassroots event in 1978 to gain national attention for its eccentric and, often, irreverent satire. The parade which has spawned numerous off-beat replicants across the country and was named by Readers Digest as “America’s Best Parade,” and was featured in the book ’50 Places You Must Visit Before You Die!’
