Glenelg Christmas Pageant

26/11/2023 @ 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM UTC+0


The Christmas Pageant is returning to Glenelg in 2023!

The Glenelg Christmas Pageant is a much-loved tradition, not only enjoyed by Holdfast Bay residents but visitors to the city as well.

Children and adults alike will once again line Jetty Road on Sunday 26 November to cheer and wave along our fantastic floats, dancers and of course the man in red. There will be an opportunity to meet Santa afterwards and participate in kids’ activities and more….

For the first time, we are partnering with Adelaide’s community broadcaster Channel 44, to present a delayed telecast of the 2023 Glenelg Christmas Pageant which will showcase the Pageant and Glenelg to a broader audience and allow participants to relive their experience.
