Myer 2020 Hobart Christmas Pageant


This year's 40th Anniversary City of Hobart MYER Christmas Pageant will be held on Saturday 14 November 2020 to celebrate the beginning of the festive season in the City of Hobart.

Last year’s 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

The City of Hobart would like to thank everyone who helped make the Myer 2019 Hobart Christmas Pageant a great success.

A special thank you to Naomi Marantelli who lent her creative expertise to at least 16 of the 66 floats in this year’s parade. And of course, thank you to our super Santa who has been bringing joy and magic to the event every year.

This wonderful community Christmas celebration would not have been possible without your support.
