Enter our parades

The Bendigo Easter Festival program features two parades:

• Torchlight Procession at 7pm on Easter Saturday April 8, 2023
• Gala Parade at 12.30pm on Easter Sunday April 9, 2023 

The parade route follows View Street, Pall Mall, McCrae Street, Chapel Street and Bridge Street.

Our parades are a traditional family favourite for many local and visitors alike, and the absolute highlight of the festival. Sweeping through city streets bringing colour, dance, movement and music to all.  

Be a part of the magic! It’s a fantastic 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.
