Santa Claus Parade


The City of Yellowknife (the City) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2021 Santa Claus Parade. This year’s theme was “Rock ’n’ Roll Christmas” and with 17 fantastic floats, the judges had their work cut out for them. The 2021 winners are: 

                                                                        Commercial: Canadian Tire 

                                                                        School: École St. Patrick High School 

                                                                        Non-Profit: NWT Broomball Association 

The winner of the Non-Profit category will receive the annual Roland Gosselin “Ho Ho Ho Award.” a $500 prize made possible by a generous donation from Roland's family honouring the longtime resident who was best know as Santa Claus in many past holiday events. 

The City is thrilled that so many Yellowknifers participated in and came out to enjoy this year's Santa Claus parade. Thank you to all participants, attendees and volunteers for making this happen. 

 It's never too early to start planning - the theme for 2022 will be Christmas in the Tropics.
