Welcome to the Hamilton Santa Claus Parade website!

We are almost there only 4 more days until the Hamilton Santa Claus and Grey Cup Parade happens.

Just a reminder that the parade is this Saturday November 18th and starts at 11:00am. This year’s parade combines the two hottest events this fall. The Hamilton Santa Claus Parade and the Grey Cup Parade. We have a larger parade this year which includes Grey Cup floats, CFL dignitaries such as the CFL Commissioner and CFL alumni. Not to mention the Grey Cup itself.

After the parade there is still plenty to do while you are downtown. There are numerous Grey Cup Festival events taking place in and around the downtown core all this week. James Street North is the location of Fan Central. Fans can expect plenty of entertainment as they stroll down James St. with fun available for all ages and free of charge. Expect live music, a collection of food trucks, the Hamilton Christmas Market, photo opportunities, art installations, and other live activations. You can follow all the Grey Cup Festival events using this link.– Grey Cup Festival

We will be doing our annual food drive again this year. Mission services will be collecting non-perishable food items and any financial donations that people want to make just ahead of the parade. So we ask that everyone show your generosity for those who may not be as fortunate.
