Santa Claus Parade Day
The Santa Claus Parade has been cancelled for 2020, but we’ll still be celebrating the holidays in Banff and Lake Louise! Stay tuned for more information – we’re working on the best way to keep visitors and locals safe this festive season.
As fall retreats and winter emerges, so does the wonder and joy of Christmas in the Canadian Rockies. In mid-November, a flurry of family-friendly activities kick-start the season in Banff bringing holiday cheer to a whole new level. During the day, kids can have their photo taken with Santa and tell him all of their Christmas wishes! At dusk, the streets come alive with the magic glow of the Santa Claus Parade of Lights. Get into the holiday spirit as a procession of floats, performers, and Santa himself, traverse Banff Avenue. After the parade, follow the performers to Banff Avenue Square for the Carols in the Park concert.
