The Santa Claus Parade – and more – takes place in Sudbury this November

Events kick off with the Santa Claus parade on November 19 at 5:30 p.m

The pumpkins and ghost decorations have been taken down as Sudbury gets ready for the “most wonderful time of the year.”

That’s right, another holiday season is coming up fast and there is no time like the present to get into the holiday spirit! Downtown Sudbury is here to deck the halls and get everyone excited for the season.

It starts with the annual Santa Claus parade on November 19 at 5:30 p.m. This year’s theme is Groovin’ with Santa, so be ready to shimmy and shake along to the music! A community staple for more than 60 years, the annual parade went on hiatus in 2020 due to COVID. This year marks its much anticipated return. Both sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available.

The parade is not the only upcoming event in the city this month.

The Downtown Sudbury Business Improvement Area Association is holding a special media training event just for DSBIA members. During this event, Marketing Hound’s Jeff MacIntyre will train business owners on how to be more media savvy. Participants will learn which opportunities to say yes to and which ones to turn down, how to prep for media interviews and how to ensure the right message gets into print. They will also learn how to deal with those awkward questions that always arise and what to do if the story hits the news – but not in the way that flatters your brand. This November 15 event is a must for all DSBIA members looking to shine in media (online, air, print) interviews. Sign up for free today.

DSBIA is also happy to promote Heart Centred Healing Circles, an evening of self-care and guided meditation. Hosted by Amy Johnston, RSW, and for an admission fee of $40, guests of this program will learn how to relax, heal, reflect and set healthy intentions. Learn more here. Take time for yourself this busy holiday season by learning some excellent self care techniques.

November 26 sees the return of the Holiday Market. Main Street (Durham Street from the YMCA to Medina Lane) will be festively adorned. A bonfire will keep shoppers cozy, horse drawn wagon rides provide nostalgia and there will be live performances on the main stage. There are plenty of deals and specials during the Holiday Market so you can get ahead on your holiday shopping.

The events continue into December. Stay tuned to DSBIA’s event page and Facebook page for details about, The Best Gifts under the Tree and the Keep Your Receipts programs on December 3, 10 and 17.

From a holiday kick off to help growing your business to self care and tools for well-being all year round, there is plenty to do, see and experience in Sudbury this November. Get involved in the city you love.
