Welcome to the Hamilton Santa Claus Parade website!

The Hamilton Santa Claus Parade Committee is proud and excited to announce that we have been working with the Grey Cup Festival committee and it is now official…
***The Hamilton Santa Claus Parade will also include the Grey Cup Parade!***
This already exciting event just got better and we are looking forward to seeing everyone come out to cheer on your favorite team as well as Santa Claus.

This year’s parade will be bigger and better than last year, and with the addition of the Grey Cup parade it certainly will have more for everyone. The annual Hamilton Santa Claus Parade will take place in downtown Hamilton and circle around the 2023 Grey Cup Festival “Fan Central” area which will be located on James Street North. See the Parade Details page for more information.

With the addition of the Grey Cup parade, we will have the added entertainment of CFL cheer teams, Grey Cup dignitaries and other CFL entries. We are sure that the second most popular float next to Santa will be the float carrying the coveted Grey Cup trophy.

For companies wanting to enter the parade with a float, please note we are limited to the number of entries this year, so get your application filled out early. Our parade entry form is now available on the Parade Entries page. For anyone who would like to volunteer to assist us along the parade route please click on the Contact Us page above. This parade is organized and ran by volunteers and we are always looking for new members.
