Halloween has come and gone which means it’s almost time for Christmas! I can already hear the chiming of the jingle bells and Mariah Carey belting ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’. In fact, the Queen City Christmas events kick off the first week of November! We are starting quickly. And with so many different events from parades to festivals to concerts to shopping and lights, it can be overwhelming. But we are here to help you make plans to get everything done this holiday season. Let’s start it off with 16 Charlotte area holiday parades you can check out this year.

Who doesn’t love a good parade? Marching bands, performances, floats, candy, and tis’ the season for a visit from Santa as well! You can find all of that in more in the numerous Christmas/holiday parades throughout the region. In fact, you can probably make a couple if you’re a die-hard parade-aholic. While I’m not personally one I’ve worked with a few over the years! And it’s Christmas after all, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. So check out 16 of the Charlotte area holiday parades to attend this year below!

Have a parade I missed? Email full info to [email protected] and I’ll include it on this and our guide to everything holiday in the Queen City.

Happy Holidays!
