Grandstand Tickets

Stay Tuned for information regarding Grandstand Tickets for the 2020 America’s Thanksgiving Parade® presented by Gardner-White.  Please follow us on Facebook for details for all upcoming events!

Step-off (Woodward & Kirby)

Located in front of the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Step-Off Grandstands are the best place to watch all the action as the floats, balloons, bands, and specialty units start their march down Woodward!

Detroit Blue Zone (Woodward & Montcalm)

Located in front of Comerica Park, these grandstands are a great view of The Parade with the historic Fox Theater as a backdrop! Cheer on the Strategic Staffing Solutions Turkey Trot runners as “the Parade before The Parade” races past!

TV Production Area at Santa’s Stage (Woodward & State St. – north or south corner) 

Here they come! The floats and balloons are ready for their TV time and you get to see them make their grand entrance! These are also the best seat in the house with the opportunity to see the WDIV pre-Parade activities! YOU might get to be on TV, too! Seats are located on the west side of Woodward on either side of Santa’s Castle
