Myer Hobart Christmas Pageant

Due to COVID-19 the 2020 MYER Hobart Christmas Pageant is cancelled.  Our thanks to previous participants and to MYER who have collectively made this event a time honoured tradition. We look forward to celebrating the 40th anniversary of the pageant in 2021.


The City of Hobart looks forward to bringing the 40th anniversary of the pageant in 2021.


About the 2019 Myer Christmas Pageant

in 2019,  the event attracted 70 entries and involved over 2,500 participants from a diverse range of community, school, sporting clubs and charity groups.

The running theme last year was bees, butterflies, flowers, upcycle and recycle, including a number of new and exciting entries.

The pageant featured special parade guests King Julien and the Penguins from Madagascar as well as Prada’s Priscilla from Sydney and local performers from the musicals Madagascar and Mamma Mia!

We also had Sue the unicorn, Rufus the donkey and their baby Dufus visiting from the Taste of Tasmania.

The Poseidon Adventure, Wheelie Bin Orchestra, the Tasmanian Junior Bee Keepers, vintage fire trucks and the Tasmanian Lighthorse – all helped usher the festive season.

Thank you
