Santa Claus Parade


The 2021 Kemptville Santa Claus Parade, which will be held on Saturday, November 20 this year, is brought to you by the Kemptville District Community Association, Kemptville Rotary Club, Kemptville Lions, North Grenville Chamber of Commerce, the Kemptville Knights of Columbus, Old Town Kemptville BIA, and the North Grenville Times (in no specific order).

There are rules which participants need to keep in mind when planning their floats and teams. All participants shall arrive at the starting point at 3 pm, and shall follow Covid-19 protocols. The lead indicated on each application shall receive updates leading to the event.

Safety First: Being aware of your surroundings is key to this being a safe and joyful event. Keeping the pace, watching for kids (of ALL ages) and being patient is primary. No throwing candy or items from your float, or handing out treats along the way. Please do not encourage spectators to enter into the street.

In the event of an accident or an emergency, please call 911 immediately.

Insurance: Each participant is required to submit a copy of their Insurance and Liability coverage for their organization, if appropriate, and vehicles involved.

Parking: Extra parking is available at the campus. Please help us keep the lanes for the participants free. The organizers are not responsible for the safety of your belongings, so please ensure you lock your vehicle.

Maintain a safe distance between parade participants. The route is approximately 4km, and may involve walkers. While the parade should flow smoothly, be prepared for some stops at different junctions. Remember throughout – This is FUN!
