The 2023 Bend Christmas Parade
Bend's most beloved event is coming soon! Although the 2020 Bend Christmas Parade was unfortunately canceled due to COVID-19 virus restrictions, the 2021 Parade returned and thousands of people packed the streets of downtown Bend. The 2021 Parade was the biggest and best ever. And the 2022 Parade was even bigger and better! 2023 is going to surpass 2022!

Cascade Relays is excited to present the first-ever Reindeer Rush— an annual children’s event that marks the start of the beloved Christmas Parade in downtown Bend. The merriment takes place on the morning of Saturday, December 2nd, giving families an exciting chance to join in the festivities.
This year, they’re offering FREE registration, and the first 500 kids to sign up will receive a reindeer headband to wear during the event. The Rush follows the parade route on Wall Street, with kids parading a few short blocks to the finish line, showcasing their holiday flair.
