12th Annual Vancouver Rogers Santa Claus Parade 2015
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2015
PARADE STARTS AT 1:00PM
Sunday, December 6, 2015 at 1:00 pm
The Parade is in downtown Vancouver, located just blocks from the Burrard, City Centre, Granville and Waterfront SkyTrain stations.
The Parade starts at Georgia and Broughton, travels east on Georgia, turns south on Howe, and finishes at Howe and Davie (1.8 kms).
The Parade has over 300 volunteers every year. The volunteer application form will be released in October, stay tuned for more details. Thank you to all volunteers that came out to the 2014 Rogers Santa Claus Parade, as the parade would not be a success without your help.
Each year the Parade attracts 300,000 spectators to downtown Vancouver.
The Parade is one of the largest food and fund raising events for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. Since 2004, the Parade has collected $141,800 and more than 75,400 lbs. of food for hungry families in the Lower Mainland. On Parade day, we encourage spectators to bring a monetary or non-perishable food donation for the Food Bank. For each dollar donated, the food Bank can purchase three dollars’ worth of food.
