National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant


The National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant, the biggest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, is a South Australian festive tradition where families line city streets to welcome Father Christmas to Adelaide.

The pageant began in 1933 and has grown each year and, in 2022, had 80 floats, 170 different sets, 3000 performers and 16 bands.

A great Christmas event for families, ensure you arrive early to secure a viewing space along the parade route.

The City of Adelaide and the Adelaide Economic Development Agency are proud supporters of the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant.
