Santa Claus Parade Day

Santa Claus Parade Day in Banff

November 16, 2019

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 Central Park for the Carols by Candlelight concert.

Check out all of the other Christmas events going on this year to help plan your trip.
