"Ringing in Christmas" is the special theme for the 2021 Christmas Parade in Historic Downtown Farmington! Silver bells, lights, floats, performing groups, off-road vehicles, marching bands, and of course Santa Claus, and the lighting of the Civic Center Christmas tree will be part of this magical Holiday Tradition! The evening Christmas parade is a long-standing tradition in Farmington!  Families flock to Historic Downtown Farmington for a peek at Santa and to be mesmerized by the twinkling lights, carolers, and holiday scenes.  The annual Christmas parade begins at 5:30 p.m. and is traditionally held the Thursday after Thanksgiving. 

Where is the best place to view the parade?

Anywhere along Main Street in Downtown is prime viewing.  The parade route will run along Main Street in Historic Downtown, from Wall Street to Auburn. The judging platform is located at the intersection of Main Street and Orchard. That area also makes for quick access to the Farmington Civic Center for the lighting of the Christmas Tree before the parade at 5:00 p.m.!
