Springfield Christmas Parade

Downtown Springfield

Take part in this long-running Holiday Tradition - the Springfield Christmas Parade on December 9! Bring the whole family — including the furry family — as this year's theme is Santa Paws is coming to town, celebrating the pets and animals we love and those that help us take care of them. 

Starting at 2 p.m. at the intersection of Elm St. and South St., the parade will make its way north on South St., around the west side of Park Central Square and then continue east on St. Louis St. to the Springfield Expo Center.

Get there early to enjoy a special outdoor Christmas Market with food trucks and vendors on Park Central Square starting at noon and continuing through the parade.
