Due to the ongoing public health emergency, the city will not allow a gathering as large as our traditional parade down 8th Street.  However, we aren’t going to let that put a stop to our annual celebration of the Capitol Hill community and this wonderful nation.


We are going to assemble a virtual parade of short videos from all of the organizations who usually march in the parade.


Here are the guidelines for submission:

  • Videos must be shot horizontally.  

  • Videos should be about 5-7 seconds long.  We know that isn’t much time, but we have a lot of groups to fit in.

  • Please dress in the costumes, uniforms, or outfits you would normally wear at the parade.

  • Video should be shot in a safe manner, which means that groups who don’t live together should have their members each shoot a video.  We will edit them together.  We will tile them “Brady Bunch” style, but you can have only one person whose audio will be heard.

  • Videos should be emailed to CapHillParade@gmail.com along with the name of the organization and the name of the people appearing in the video.

  • All videos must be submitted by June 16 so that we have time to edit them together.

  • Creativity is encouraged, and if you have an unusual request for how your groups section should be edited together, please let us know.


The final video will show the wonderful community spirit of our neighborhood, so we hope that you will participate.


And the usual fine print: by submitting a video, you are giving us permission to use it, without payment, for this project.  The video will be publicly exhibited, and you waive any right to inspect or approve the finished product.
