Hollywood Christmas Parade

The Hollywood Christmas Parade is an ideal performance event and not just for bands!  We are searching for talent: marching bands, choirs, dance and cheer groups. Let’s see you on the famed red carpet!

Gateway is the exclusive travel planner of the Hollywood Christmas Parade, a nationally-televised event that has kicked off the holiday season for over 80 years. Each year, selected marching bands play their way up and down iconic Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards, spreading holiday cheer along with nearly 100 celebrities.

The parade takes place annually the weekend following Thanksgiving Day.
