Holiday Parades in Golden, CO

FREE HOLIDAY FAMILY FUN 

 

Golden’s old-fashioned holiday parade started in 2005 with a few cowboys on horseback, an antique fire truck, and members of the Colorado School of Mines band, and today, it bursts with Colorado charm and delights children of all ages with its eclectic display of floats and holiday characters.

 

PARADE DETAILS

Join in the holiday spirit and watch floats, clowns, festive holiday characters, and Santa Claus on the firetruck parade down Washington Avenue. After the parades, head to the downtown area shops and restaurants.

 

 

 

WHEN?

The parades are on December 7, 14, and 21 at 11:00 a.m. The route is down Washington Avenue from 11th to 13th Streets through historic downtown.  Each parade is different, providing the perfect reason to bring the family back to Golden again and again!

PARKING

  • Garages located along Jackson Street between 11th and 13th have easy access to Golden's downtown. 
  • Free parking on all Saturdays and Sundays, and local shops and restaurants offer discounts and specials on parade days.

While in town, drop off the kids' letters to Santa inside the Golden Visitor Center and plan to stay for all the after-parade events listed on our Events and Attractions page. We look forward to seeing you in Golden!
