AFL Grand Final parade details

One of the great traditions of the AFL Grand Final will have a Black and White flavour on Friday 28 September.

As is the case every year, the official Grand Final parade will snake its way through the City of Melbourne, before ending with the presentations of Collingwood, West Coast and the premiership cup outside the MCG.

With a public holiday in full effect, the parade provides fans of all ages to get in the Grand Final spirit, and see the participating players up close before the big game.

Marching bands, roving entertainers and so much more will join the players and coaches as the parade travels from the Old Treasury Building to the AFL Grand Final live site in Yarra Park.  

The action is all free, and kicks off at 11.15am on the steps of the Old Treasury Building.
