Celebrate Aberdeen 2012

Posted on January 17, 2012 by


Following a very successful event in 2011, the second Celebrate Aberdeen parade will take place in June 2012. The Urquhart Partnership are again delighted to be involved as part of the event management team.

The aim of the parade is to unite Aberdeen’s third sector in a bright and energetic celebratory parade and to highlight the diversity of the third sector – of organisations of all sizes.

It is also to allow thousands of third sector participants to be involved completely free of charge and provide an opportunity to thank the third sector for their invaluable contribution

So, at 11:00am, on June 9th 2012, the third sector will again join together with private sector sponsors to parade down the city’s Union Street, supported by an array of street performers and musical entertainment.

Last years parade was a huge success and filled the entire length of union street with:

  • Over 3000 participants

  • 126 charities and community groups from the third sector

  • 92 sponsor organisations

  • More than 300 street entertainers
