This event is a CHRISTMAS THEMED FAMILY ORIENTED parade. It is not an appropriate venue for political ideology, campaigns, or social statements. The Committee continues to plan for a “live” parade, however, we remain under direction of state and county health department directives for outdoor mega events.

The Bakersfield Christmas Parade 2022 will be aired live and uncut on 23abc Thursday, December 1 from 6-8 p.m. It will also be rebroadcast in its entirety on Christmas Morning and New Year’s Day. It will also be aired on Roku, You tube, Android tv, Amazon Fire tv, and Apple tv.
Our very first year using these formats produced 1,000,000 hits to the platforms. One. Million. Hits. That’s a lot of watching eyes. You can be a part of this remarkable coverage as you help us keep this tradition alive for our community.
Many do not realize, but the Bakersfield Christmas Parade Committee is a 501(c3) nonprofit comprised of educational professionals, community members and those passionate about the holidays! Unlike other communities, we rely on the support of local contributions to help make our Parade such a fun and entertaining evening for all!
Each Holiday season more than 20,000 of our ‘closest friends’ join us downtown to celebrate the “Spirit of Christmas”. This unique free community event inspires delight and wonder for the young and young at heart and there is something for absolutely everyone!
