Williamsburg Christmas Parade

2018 Theme: “Miracle on D. o G. Street”

You asked and we listened! The Christmas Parade is 9AM, Saturday, December 1, 2018. 

The annual Christmas parade is Saturday, Dec. 1 at 9am. Join us as we usher in the holiday season in Williamsburg with a variety of floats, bands, civic, religious and animal groups, commercial businesses, non-profit organizations and more highlighted by our special guests, Santa & Mrs. Claus all decked out depicting our Miracle on D.o.G. Street theme! Inspired by the classic holiday movie, we hope our theme will inspire miracles big and small throughout the holiday season!

The parade route is Richmond Rd. beginning at Brooks Street and the first block of Duke of Gloucester street through Merchant’s Square onto Henry Street, ending at the corner of Henry and Francis Streets. Arrive early and be aware that streets will close promptly at 8:30am, no exceptions. Richmond Road will be cleared of parked cars by 8:30am Saturday morning so please DO NOT plan to park on the parade route. Plenty of parking in the Scotland Street & Boundary Street garages and around town. NO PARKING IN THE COLONIAL WILLIAMSBURG LOT 44.

Due to the The Williamsburg Farmer’s Market will be open 8am-12noon in lot P6. Most area paid lots will be free until 12noon on Saturday for the parade. Approximately 40 spaces will be available for disability parking at Zable Stadium (available first-come first-served so get there early).

NEW THIS YEAR: Parents picking up parade participants in walking groups will have to WALK to the DeWitt Wallace Museum green to retrieve your child, or to the parking lot at the graduate center for those riding on a float. THERE IS NO THROUGH TRAFFIC IN THE DISPERSAL AREA!!! Please plan ahead!
