The Barrie Santa Claus Parade, presented by the Barrie Chamber of Commerce since 1949 will be returning for its 74th run on Saturday, November 18th, 2023. This long running family event in Barrie is a holiday tradition! The parade kicks off at 5pm - we can't wait to see all of Barrie lining the streets and cheering for Santa.

Let's Start Planning

Download our Participant Guide - this will include location information, timing, rules and expectations of all participants of the parade.

2023 Theme

The Theme for 2023 is PARADE OF LIGHTS! With so many incredible options available, we know the amazing Barrie Business Community will deliver a dazzling show. We can't wait to see it at our evening parade!

2023 Sponsorships

We welcome the business community to take advantage of this long time, community favourite event and become sponsors. Each package includes a float entry in the parade. 

If you would like to be a sponsor but are unable to create a float - we have a solution! Charity groups often have the time and enthusiasm to build a float, but not the capital to generate one. Businesses often have the funds, but lack the bandwidth to dedicate the effort to build. By connecting you to each other, you both have the opportunity to get out in front of the Barrie community as partners.

The Barrie Chamber is happy to pair your company with a local Charity or Not for Profit organization.
