Adelaide National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant | 13 Nov 2021

Adelaide’s National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant Returns to Adelaide Oval in 2021

Adelaide’s National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant will once again be taking place at Adelaide Oval on Saturday 13 November 2021. 

Our Pageant is the Southern Hemisphere’s largest public parade so it’s exciting to see it go ahead, traditionally marking the start of the Christmas season and most importantly, welcoming Father Christmas to South Australia.
