Myer 2018 Hobart Christmas Pageant

Saturday, 17 November 2018 | 10:30 AM

The Myer 2018 Hobart Christmas Pageant will be held on Saturday 17 November at 10.30 am to celebrate the beginning of the festive season in the City of Hobart. Around 60 entries from the community, charities and local businesses will be participating this year.

Special guests this year will include Erth Dinosaurs, a t-rex and a couple of leaellynasaura. After the Pageant the dinosaurs will be available for photos and a meet and great at Parliament House Lawns, between 1– 2 pm. 

Also appearing in the parade will be Shrek, Fiona and Donkey from Fairy-tale Land. After the Pageant, don't forget to visit Santa at the Myer store from 12 midday.

The pageant route will be slightly different this year as it commences in Liverpool Street outside Dumpling World and parades along Liverpool Street, up Harrington Street and returns down Collins Street. Please note: Argyle Street is a non-viewing area for spectators, as it is being used for event coordination. A crossing point will be available for members of the public who need to access the Royal Hobart Hospital.

The City of Hobart would like to acknowledge our naming rights sponsor, Myer, for their significant ongoing support of this community event and our 2018 media partners, Mercury, 7HOFM and WIN Television.
