General FAQs

The National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant is traditionally held on the second Saturday in November. 

If this day falls on Remembrance Day (11 November), the pageant is moved to the Saturday before or after, depending on the year. 

In 2022, the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant is on Saturday 12 November.

The National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant is in Adelaide, South Australia. Traditionally the Pageant route travels around the streets of the Adelaide CBD.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2020 and 2021 the event was held as an arena spectacular at Adelaide Oval. 

In 2019, the route started at the corner of South Terrace and King William Street, and finished at the Adelaide Town Hall. 

The characters in the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant are played by staff of our naming rights partner National Pharmacies.

The bands in the Pageant play on a rotation system and performance groups are selected each year to suit the Pageant's needs.

We are more than happy to receive enquiries from bands and performance groups with great ideas. Please send your performance group's contact information and a brief description of your ideas to [email protected].

If your idea suits our artistic directional needs, you may just be asked to participate!
