This annual tradition kicks off promptly at 5:30 PM the Saturday following Thanksgiving in downtown Cheyenne. The Parade is a community tradition that works to bring our community together for the holidays. A parade theme is voted on by community and business support during the summer. Each year, the event follows the Annual Shop Small Saturday events, which are city-wide and aim to create awareness about the needs to support local business through the "Shop Small" movement. The focus each year is to create a day of support and togetherness in our community, concluding with the "parade of lights" and a ceremony lighting the beautiful community Christmas Tree in the Plaza.
The parade starts at 17th Street and Carey Avenue, marching north on Carey to 24th Street, and then turning right to Capitol Avenue. From Capitol Avenue, the parade continues down to 16th street and concludes on Pioneer Avenue with Santa continuing on to the Depot Plaza for the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.
Remember: The first float of the Christmas Parade is Toys for Tots. Please bring unwrapped toys to the parade and let's see how many toys the people of Cheyenne can collect this year! LEARN MORE
