Saturday 3rd December from 4pm.

Join us to celebrate Christmas in Rotorua, with this years Christmas Parade & Festival.


Starting at 4pm, the Parade waves its way through the CBD and finishes off at the all new festival on the Village Green.


This years Festival will be in full swing from 4pm also. Shifting our focus from the main stage to a mix of exciting interactive sites around the Village Green, featuring entertainment and activities for the kids, food vendors, some Christmas retail therapy, a short prize giving for our amazing winning floats and of course our Christmas Movie on the big screen.


Santa will be there after the parade for photos, and to support Salvation Army we encourage you to bring a gift for Santa! He will then make sure families in need get a little extra something this Christmas.


Please keep an eye on our facebook page and this website for updates.


Please note, due to similar ceremonies taking place we have decided not to have the previously advertised community Christmas Tree this year.

Sorry for any confusion or inconvenience.  

Thank you to all our great sponsors
