National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant

November 2, 2024


The date has been set for festive season fun to begin when the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant returns to the streets of Adelaide later this year.

The event’s 92nd edition will start at 9:30am on Saturday 2 November and is set to wind through the city before Father Christmas completes his journey where it all began, in Rundle Mall.

An audience of 320,000 people enjoyed the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant – the southern hemisphere’s largest public street parade – in 2023.

Since 1933, the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant has grown to become one of Australia’s most cherished events, celebrated every November with the support of National Pharmacies and the South Australian Tourism Commission’s events arm, Events South Australia.

The National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant is a magical, free community event, full of fantasy, floats, colourful characters, bands, dancers and more, shared by generations of Australians.

National Pharmacies is the title sponsor of the Christmas Pageant, and a proud South Australian organisation. Since opening its first dispensary in Adelaide in 1911, National Pharmacies has expanded to 51 pharmacies across South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales, and 20 Optical Stores in South Australia and is proud to partner with the event to continue captivating generations of Australian children.

Date: Saturday 2 November 2024

Time: 9:30 am

The event will also be broadcast LIVE on Channel 9 for South Australians to watch.
