Barossa Christmas Parade 2017 date confirmed

Lock it in Eddie – the date for the 2017 Barossa Christmas Parade has been confirmed.

It might still be eight months away, but we all know how quick that time can go!

The 2017 event will be held on Friday, December 1 – and this year’s committee has some great new ideas to build a bigger and better community celebration.

Old favourites will return, and there will be some enthralling new displays and floats to entertain big and little kids alike.

Following last year’s tremendous success, the Barossa Herald will again livestream the 2017 event – with some special extras to be added.

Plans are also underway for an exciting new competition which it is hoped will encourage more high schools and community groups to take part.

Expressions of interest for the 2017 parade can be forwarded to convenor Rory Champion via email at

There’s just 259 days to go!
