Glenelg Christmas Pageant | 26 Nov 2023

Celebrate the return of the Glenelg Christmas Pageant on Sunday 26 November 2023.

The Glenelg Christmas Pageant is a much-loved tradition, not only enjoyed by Holdfast Bay residents but visitors to the City as well.

Children and adults alike will once again line Jetty Road on Sunday 26 November 2023 to cheer and wave along with the fantastic floats, dancers and of course the man in red. There will be an opportunity to meet Santa afterwards and participate in kid’s activities.

After the pageant the Children’s Christmas Village will be open from 11am – 3pm in Moseley Square. Activities include:

  • Write a letter to Santa
  • Make some Christmas crafts at the Bay Discovery Centre and go on an elf hunt
  • Work on your footy skills with AFL Max
  • Sparkle with face glitter by Calamity Tash or have your face painted in a festive design
  • Enjoy a sweet treat by Treat Me

Once Santa has made his way down Jetty Road and Colley Terrace to Augusta Street at the conclusion of the Glenelg Christmas Pageant you will be able to visit both him and Mrs Claus on level one of the Bay Discovery Center between 11.30am and 3pm.

The ticket booth will be under a white marquee located opposite the foreshore playground in the Bay Discovery Centre Building, open from 11am – 2.30pm.

Accessible Viewing Area

There will be a dedicated accessible viewing area along the pageant route for people who use wheelchairs or mobility scooters.
The accessible viewing area will be located at the junction of Jetty Road and Partridge Street. There will be an accessible toilet at this location with additional accessible parking in the nearby Partridge Street car park.

Bookings are not required for this space but they ask pageant goers to please be respectful and allow the space to be used by people who require it.

For the first time, City of Holdfast Bay is partnering with Adelaide’s community broadcaster Channel 44, to present a delayed telecast of the 2023 Glenelg Christmas Pageant which will showcase the Pageant and Glenelg to a broader audience and allow participants to relive their experience.
