Dunedin's Annual Santa Parade is now in its 24th year. This is Otago's largest free public event! A dedicated team of volunteers are delighted to bring this Parade to Families and Children

The Dunedin Santa Parade announces the Arrival of Christmas in Dunedin.

Exciting floats, many bands, marching, Fire Engines, animals, Clowns and of course- Santa. The Parade is followed by a family concert in the lower Octagon.

Sanata Parade

* 2021 Cancelled

This is so disappointing but we will have to cancel the 2021 Santa Parade. Due to Covid restrictions, our parade too has become a victim of the virus.

However, we plan to make sure that 2022 is BIGGER AND BETTER We really appreciate all your support for the Parade and hope you appreciate our predicament.

Thank you once again on behalf of the Dunedin Santa Parade Trust Board
