The Greater Manassas Christmas Parade has been a fixture in the community for 71 years! It takes place the first Saturday in December at 10 a.m. It has become one of the largest holiday parades in Northern Virginia with over 100 units-marching bands, floats, high-flying balloons, and more! We have approximately 2,000 participants and over 300 volunteers. The parade sets the mood for the holiday season has become a family tradition with multiple generations lined up to watch the parade!


Help Make Memories for a Child on Christmas Day!


For the second year, we are partnering with Un-Trim-A-Tree to collect new, un-wrapped toys for children in the Greater Manassas area.  Last year, Un-Trim-A-Tree served more than 5,005 children! A float will be going along the parade route before the parade begins to collect the toys.  If you arrive later than expected and the float has already passed, please give your toy to a parade marshal along the route and they will ensure your toy is donated.
