Christmas celebration

GACC Annual Christmas Parade and Lighting Ceremony

November 26, 2022 6:30 p.m.

​The last Saturday of November is a very busy time in Garnett. Chamber members participate in the Small Business Saturday  event with specials and promotions. Then, that night is our Annual Christmas Parade and Downtown Lighting Ceremony. We encourage all businesses to participate and support the Shop Small movement.. 

There is no place like Christmas in Garnett. Join us on the Downtown Square on the last Thursday of November for our Christmas Celebration. Help us countdown the lighting of the square and enjoy the highly anticipated Christmas Parade! Remember to stop by the Fire Station before and after the parade for their annual Chili & Soup Supper! Get your picture taken with Santa at the Fire Station, after the parade.

Does your family, organization, church or business want to participate in the parade? We welcome anyone into our parade for FREE! You do not have to have a float, walkers and car riders are welcome!
