Annual Fuquay-Varina Christmas Parade

Presented by Massengill Design Build and Cricket Wireless!

Join us for a great day in Fuquay-Varina!

The annual Fuquay-Varina Christmas Parade is held on the first Sunday of December every year at 3:00 pm. The parade route begins at the intersection of North Main Street and Woodrow Street (by David Anthony’s gift shop) and extends all the way through the downtown Fuquay retail district and back down Academy Street to Woodrow Street (by the middle school). The parade route does NOT end in the downtown district by Mason Jar Tavern.

Bring your soccer chairs and blankets for the kids to sit on the curb, and enjoy one of the most treasured community events in Fuquay-Varina!
