At 9:30am on Saturday 10 November, the whistle will blow to signal the beginning of the 2018 Credit Union Christmas Pageant – the 86th year of the Pageant!

Since 1933,the Christmas Pageant has been the traditional start to the Christmas season in South Australia. Thousands of people, young and old, line the city streets to welcome Father Christmas to Adelaide.

To celebrate the 86th year of the Credit Union Christmas Pageant, the elves at Stardust Castle are planning some big surprises! Stay tuned through our website, Facebook Page, Instagram and Twitter for announcements relating to the magical new floats and exciting competitions you can enter for your chance to take part in this significant South Australian community event.

People of all ages gather along Adelaide’s streets each November to welcome the Credit Union Christmas Pageant to town.

Over 172 bright and colourful sets, including floats, bands, dancers and clowns entertain thousands of people, culminating in the arrival of Father Christmas himself in Adelaide.

The Pageant starts at the corner of South Terrace and King William Street at 9.30am and winds its way through the streets of Adelaide, finishing at the landing stage on the corner of North Terrace and Kintore Avenue before delivering Father Christmas to the Magic Cave at David Jones at approximately 11.30am.
