    Darwin City Brass Band readies for Darwin Christmas Pageant.

    Band Xmas Look for the Darwin City Brass Band participating in the 2023 Darwin Christmas Pageant on Saturday 18 November. 

    City of Darwin Lord Mayor Kon Vatskalis said celebrating Christmas brings the community together.

    “From school kids to sports clubs and multicultural groups, the pageant is an opportunity for people to appreciate each other and in a spirit of kindness bring some fun and joy to our city.

    “I can’t wait to see what the community creates to show us what ‘A very Darwin Christmas’ means for them. This is a great start to the Darwin festive season and I encourage community groups across Darwin to get involved, celebrate Christmas and start designing a float,” Mr Vatskalis said.

    Xmas Parade 2022 Last year’s first-of-its-kind-event saw close to 50 floats and more than 900 Territorians parade down the Esplanade and Knuckey Street and finish at Raintree Park, where pageant participants and more than 7,000 spectators enjoyed live-music and performances. 

    Following the Pageant, there will be a range of fun and family friendly Christmas themed activities throughout Darwin City.

    This initiative is a partnership between the Northern Territory Government and City of Darwin.
