Two parades are conducted as part of the event each year. Please note the change of parade days/times due for the extended program for the 150th Bendigo Easter Fair:
- Sherridon Homes Torchlight Procession on Easter Sunday (April 17, 2022)
- Bendigo Advertiser Gala Parade on Easter Monday (April 18, 2022)
The parades are the highlights of the festival, providing an opportunity for community groups to express their artistic talent and culture and be seen by tens of thousands of people who line the parade route each year. The route follows View Street, Pall Mall, McCrae Street and Bridge Street.
Applications for parade entrants have now closed.
