Starting on Federal St and moving down Queen St and Customs St East.
This year’s Farmers Santa Parade will kick off at 1pm on Sunday 26th November with a rain date of Sunday 3rd December.
84 wonderful years of the legacy that is the Farmers Santa Parade; and this year promises to provide some of the best celebrations yet!
The Farmers Santa Parade is, for both volunteers and parade-goers, the most exciting event of the year. The design team work hard each year to bring fresh energy to the costumes and floats to reflect a diverse and all-inclusive family audience. Whilst we are busy planning with our incredible creative team, please feel free to dive into our wonderful archives from previous years!

Kids are in for a massive treat with Thomas the Tank Engine, My Little Pony, The Madagascar Penguins, Peter Rabbit, Spot the Dog, Mickey & Minnie Mouse, Buzzy Bee, Cinderella, Goldilocks & the Three Bears and Where’s Wally.
Don’t forget to come and get your groove on at Santa’s Party 2:30pm to 5pm in Aotea Square; there is always more fun to be had, with rides, giveaways, refreshments and that one last chance to see Santa before December 25th!
