The Vancouver Santa Claus Parade has been one of British Columbia's most cherished holiday traditions for more than 13 years, drawing more than 300,000 spectators to downtown Vancouver each year, plus numerous viewers at home.

begins at noon on Sunday, December 3. The parade route begins in the West End and moves toward downtown on West Georgia Street, then turns down Howe Street at the Vancouver Art Gallery. As in previous years, two-hours of family entertainment will also be presented at Christmas Square prior to the parade.

Since its inception, Vancouver Santa Claus Parade has supported the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society, a non-profit organization that provides healthy food to more than 27,000 people each week. Each year, the parade encourages spectators to bring a monetary or food donation for the Food Bank. With the support of sponsors and parade spectators, the parade collects thousands of dollars and thousands of pounds of food for the numerous local families the Food Bank supports.

Additional sponsors include Purdys Chocolatier, Toys R Us, Island Farms, Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Port of Vancouver, Starbucks and the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association.
