Thanks for your interest in the 2021 Holiday Parade, presented by Bojangles! The event will take place on Saturday, Nov. 20 at 11 AM.
The Asheville Holiday Parade is a complex event with many moving parts, dozens of staff and volunteers, and more than 100 entries. It only runs smoothly if everyone follows the rules, implements our guidelines and follows direction from organizers. Please consider your neighbors and work toward the best interest of the overall event as you make plans and communicate with your group.
