Chicago Thanksgiving Parade Float Sponsor,

Chicago, Illinois, United States Chicago, Illinois, United States

  • About the event

    The Chicago Thanksgiving Parade is one of the oldest and second largest Thanksgiving Parades in the US and hosted on Thanksgiving Day.

    This year, Tampa Florida based Krewe of Europa has been invited to appear in the 2022 parade with their custom engineered and built parade float. The float will be one of a kind for Chicago as it was built to bring the Tampa krewe experience across the lower 48 states. High tech and also has air conditioning and heating, the float is 45' in lenght and displayes three famous Europe landmarks, The Vatican up front, the Hafbrau Haus in the mid section and the Brazen Head,of Dublin Ireland, the oldest pub in the world (est 1198AD).

    Krewe of Europa will be "Bringing Miles of Smiles" to this historic event.

    Why should you sponsor?

    The Krewe of Europa is the only global krewe and is recognized not only in the US but in Europe. Every event captures the eyes and hearts of the spectators. Our costumes are over the top and our soon to be complete float will be unlike any other parade float in the world.

    Our brand is recognized in many markets as we have been invited in the NYC Columbus Day Parade, the 2023 Galway Ireland St Patrick's Parade and another major Thanksgiving Parade in 2023.

    We are a 501c3 not for profit foundation that is supported through membership dues. We depend on sponsors to bring our float to out of Florida events due to excessive cost of tow. Your brand will be acknowledged in a positive fashion by partnering with a brand that is highly recognized and engaging to the audience.

    We are based in Tampa, Florida USA and are registered as a 501c3 not for profit with members spanning the globe from Ireland, Nederland’s, Spain, Greece and many other countries. Bringing the world’s cultures to the public, locally, nationally and around the globe. Our Krewe travels to events and parades globally unlike any traditional krewe, thus we are a traveling krewe. Locally, we participate in most of the major parades in Tampa Bay and into the Panhandle of Florida.

    Europa is a coed krewe of corporate professionals. Membership is open to all, age 21 and over. Each member must be sponsored by a current member in good standing. Additionally, our members are background checked and are on probation for the first six months of membership. Each member pays their own travel expenses to events and is required to purchase their own costumes from a Krewe approved supplier.

    The Krewe celebrates The Age of Discovery, also known as the Age of Exploration and the Great Navigation's, a period in European history from the early 15th century to the early 17th century. During this period, Europeans engaged in intensive exploration and early colonization of many parts of the world, establishing direct contact with the Americas and Oceania. Historians often refer to the Age of Discovery to mean the pioneering period of the Portuguese and Spanish long-distance maritime travels in search of alternative trade routes to the Indies. The contact between the “Old World” of Europe and the so-called “New World” of the Americas produced what is called the Colombian Exchange: the wide transfer of plants, animals, foods, and culture between the Eastern and Western hemispheres.
