Ch Insp Jon Burrows of the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said those who take part in unnotified parades "do not represent the majority of people who live in north Lurgan".
"Many of those who participate in this event every year are not from the local community," he added.
"The police have attempted to engage with members of this group, advising them to comply with their legal responsibilities in relation to processions."
He added that a "significant number of people" have been prosecuted in relation to the annual march in Lurgan in previous years.
