Santa Comes to Listowel


Santa Claus has agreed to return to Listowel for a visit with children on Saturday, November 30th and join in our parade!

Since Santa is coming from such a long distance, the Chamber is helping by hosting an afternoon visit at the Listowel Fire Hall, from 3-5 pm. Children of all ages can come to have a picture taken and to make sure their request is presented to him personally.


The Chamber is keeping the starting location of the parade to Nelson Street, behind Walmart. Because of the night time parade, this location provides more lighting and what might be a safer and easier transition into the lineup.

The parade is at night, beginning at 7 pm, but we start the marshalling process at 6 pm.

The theme this year, is ‘A Snowman Invasion’.


From the starting corner (Nelson and Main St. W) turning onto Main Street heading east to the lights, turning north at the lights on Wallace Avenue.

The parade will then turn east at the next set of lights, onto Elizabeth and finish at the Legion parking lot / or Memorial arena. The estimated length of the parade is 40 Minutes.


We always are looking for financial donations to assist in the parade to cover the cost of hosting such a great event.


The Chamber couldn’t have made this day complete without all the assistance from the Chamber’s Partners and the business community.

Sponsorship allows us to bring in a lot of extra’s into our day, from treats to bands, to ALL of Santa’s many helpers.

The North Perth Chamber of Commerce would like to extend a special thank you to our Partners and those businesses that help in so many ways to make this parade such a success, from opening your doors and offering hot chocolate, building floats, and to the Volunteers for your countless contributions and assistance with this special day with Santa.

The Listowel Fire Department for allowing Santa's Place to be at their location

ReMax Midwestern Realty for being Greeters at the firehall with hot chocolate and cookies
