General Asheville Event

Celebrating 77 years, the annual Asheville Holiday Parade in downtown features over 100 entries including marching bands, dance and cheer squads, and colorful floats. The fun and festive event is the perfect way to kick off the Christmas season. The parade will begin at 11 AM and go until 12:30 PM, with streets closing and traffic beginning around 7 AM. Before the parade, there will be the Onesie One Miler hosted by Kick It Events at 10:30 AM. The Onesie One Miler is a festive downtown dash to the finish line that’s fun for the entire family! 

Be sure to come early to find a spot along the one-mile route that travels up Biltmore Avenue from Charlotte Street towards Pack Square. Pack Square is the only performance area, and it's the location for WLOS TV cameras and judges. The parade then turns left on Patton Avenue and ends on French Broad Street. 

With appearances from Santa from the North Pole and Sister Bad Habit from LaZoom Comedy Tours, this parade keeps Asheville weird while spreading plenty of holiday cheer! After attending the parade, be sure to stop by the Holiday Market at Open Hearts Art Center to shop for handcrafted gifts from 1-6:00 PM!
