Christchurch Children’s Christmas Parade Trust


The success of the Santa Parade is due largely to the professionalism of its Parade Manager and creative team whose wide-ranging experience is fully drawn upon for the benefit of the Parade.

For over 73 years the Christchurch Santa Parade has brought joy to the children of Christchurch and its environs. It has a history filled with fun, excitement, and fantasy. This year will be no exception.

Our Trustees

The Trustees are: The Press, Christchurch City Council, Retail NZ, Star Media, Canterbury Employer’s Chamber of Commerce and Farmers.

The Trustees’ focus is to stage a high quality annual Christmas Parade that turns every child’s fantasies into reality, while providing sponsors an opportunity to promote their business to a substantial audience.


The organisers and volunteers work as ‘one big family’ and are very passionate about the Parade, an essential element to the success of any event.
