Trenton Santa Claus Parade

2023 Trenton Santa Claus Parade

2023 Trenton Santa Claus Parade

Celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the Trenton Santa Claus Parade!

The Quinte West Chamber of Commerce is proud to once again host the Trenton Santa Claus Parade for our community. 

This year, we are dedicating the parade to a longtime volunteer, Bryan Swartman. Bryan has retired from the parade after being our Parade Marshall for close to 40 years.  He assisted with the float line-up, the behind the scenes logistics and ensuring the parade left Centennial Park on time.  “The Santa Claus Parade does not happen without the dedicated volunteers behind the scenes,” states Suzanne Andrews, CEO at the Quinte West Chamber of Commerce.  “Bryan has been leading the efforts of the volunteer fire fighters and other volunteers for so many years and his efforts are truly appreciated, we are pleased to be able to honour his impact this way.”
Enter a float here. No Charge to enter a float. We ask all entries to make sure their float as well as vehicles in the parade are all decorated and lit up.  If you are walking in the parade throw some lights on you as well so everyone can see you!

The parade leaves the Community Gardens (Centennial Park) at 4:30p.m. It then follows Campbell St., turns left on Dundas St. E. and goes over the Veteran Skyway Bridge. It goes through downtown Trenton along Dundas St. W., dispersing at Queen Street.
