The Winter Magic Festival Grand Parade

The Grand Parade is a highlight of the Winter Magic Festival with over 500 colourful participants celebrating the winter solstice and the rich, diverse community of the Blue Mountains and beyond. The Grand Parade is a people only parade that reflects the Festival ethos of an inclusive, respectful,family-friendly community celebration.

The parade starts at 11:30am sharp at the corner of Waratah and Lurline Sts.

The parade moves up Waratah St; turns right into Katoomba St and continues to the top of the Street; then turns left in Main St (opposite train station);and left again into Parke St (past Family Hotel); ending at the rear of the Carrington Hotel.

The parade finishes at 12:30-12:45pm at the end of the parade route.

Spectators are encouraged to spread out along the parade route, especially into Main St and lower Parke Sts. You’ll get a better view and won’t miss a thing, we promise!

The show must go on! The Winter Magic Festival and the Grand Parade go ahead rain, hail or shine…… or snow :)

Please wear/bring appropriate clothing to suit the weather so you can enjoy the parade in comfort.
