The Annual Mule Days Celebration Parade

The World's Longest Non-Motorized Parade!


Everybody Loves a Parade!

The Bishop Mule Days Celebration Parade is one of the long standing and crowd favored signature events of Memorial Day Weekend. Spectators covet prime locations up and down Bishop’s Main Street hoping to garner a priceless view of the beautiful mules, wagons, drivers and riders.

Parade Route

Parade participants begin leaving the Tri-County Fairgrounds as early as 7:00 a.m. heading down the back streets of Bishop to the south end of town. The Parade starts at 10:00 a.m. at South and Main Streets and moves north on Main Street. The Parade makes a left turn at Sierra Street and proceeds to the Fairgrounds entrance. The Parade Detour begins promptly at 9:30 a.m. with Main Street being closed to vehicle traffic. All vehicle traffic is rerouted on a multi agency approved detour. Driving during the parade is strongly discouraged to keep traffic flows to a minimum for necessary travel. Plan to arrive at your Parade destination as early as possible. Parade Detour Map

After the Parade

After the Parade please come to the Tri-County Fairgrounds to see many of the Parade participants in the Grand Entry at the 1:00 p.m. Mule Show in the Main Arena. The Grand Entry is truly one of the most beautiful Mule Shows of the Bishop Mule Days Celebration.
