    press FAQs

    How do I get a credential to cover the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade®?

    All media must have an NYPD press credential in order to be on the line of the march to cover the Parade. The NYPD press credential allows the accredited individual access to certain areas on the line of the march including portions of the Parade's starting line and route. Access is limited to the route from 38th Street through 75th Street only.

    How can I acquire an NYPD press credential to cover the Parade?

    The NYPD does not issue event-specific credentials. If you do not have an NYPD press credential, you may still cover the Parade, but only from behind the barricaded audience areas. If you are a member of the foreign press, Macy's may be able to accommodate you at a small platform dedicated for this purpose. Please contact Macy's Media Relations for more information.

    What areas of the Parade do not permit media access?

    There is absolutely no media access between 34th and 38th Street on 6th Avenue and between 7th Avenue and Broadway on 34th Street.

    What are some restrictions when covering the Parade?

    We appreciate your adherence to these guidelines that are in place to maintain the integrity and safety of the Parade:

    • Members of the media are not allowed to stop or otherwise impede the movement of any Parade element.
    • Members of the media are not allowed to completely surround any Parade element.
    • Members of the media must follow the Parade from the curbside. Being in close proximity to any moving element may impede its progress or in some rare cases, can become a safety issue, as elements can make unexpected turns or stops.

    Where can I get press materials for the Parade?

    Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade® press materials are generally available on November 1st of every year at macys.com/pressroom. These materials include various press releases, maps and photography.

    Where can I find information on how to cover pre-Parade media events?

    Please contact Macy's Media Relations for up-to-the-minute information on pre-Parade media opportunities.
