Santa Claus is coming to Renfrew! The annual Santa Claus Parade will start at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 2nd, 2023. The parade will leave from the Renfrew Armouries, located at 115 Veterans Memorial Boulevard, and travel downtown Renfrew on Raglan Street South before ending at Munroe Avenue. After the parade, there will be an opportunity for photos with Santa until 9:00 p.m. at the Renfrew Recreation Centre located at 67 Argyle Street South.

“We encourage people of all ages to come out and take in the holiday cheer,” says Renfrew’s Community Outreach and Programs Specialist, Janyne Fraser. “This year we’ve partnered with some amazing local businesses and organizations to help make the parade one to remember.”
