2023 Christmas Parade: Jingle Bell Jubilee sponsored by Dominion Energy

Sunday, December 3, 2023 (5:00 PM - 7:00 PM) (EST)


The Greater Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to announce that the 2023 Christmas Parade, sponsored by Dominion Energy, will be held on Sunday, December 3rd at 5 PM. An endearing local tradition since 1965, the Christmas Parade ushers in the holiday season with festive floats, live performances, and a special visit from Santa himself. Garnering a record of over 18,000 spectators in 2022, the early-evening setting provides a magical backdrop for illuminated floats. Parade spectators are also invited to participate in the illumination by adorning light-up apparel and accessories. This year’s theme, Jingle Bell Jubilee, evokes the spirit of the holidays, such as jingling bells, twinkling lights, and joyful music. Parade participants are therefore encouraged to create floats inspired by this theme.

Local marching bands may apply with early access by contacting Lauren Moore, Vice President of Communications & Programming. Applications for all other floats will open September 5th on the parade webpage. Fill out your application here: https://www.businesswilliamsburg.com/christmas-parade-application

This year's Parade units are at capacity. You may join the waitlist but the waitlist does not guarantee placement in the parade. We will reach out to waitlisted units if space becomes available. Thank you for your support of the 

2023 Christmas Parade.  

This year’s Parade Application will consist of an online application, opening September 5th, and a downloadable registration form. Your parade application is not complete until the application, registration form, and registration fee has been submitted.
