Newburyport’s Santa Parade and Tree Lighting

November 26, 2023 @ 3:00 pm 4:00 pm

For more than three decades, Newburyport has rung in the start of the holiday season by welcoming Santa and Mrs. Claus as they arrive by U.S. Coast Guard boat.

Traditionally held on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, Santa’s arrival is followed by a parade through Newburyport that ends at Market Square, where Santa and community leaders host a tree-lighting ceremony. The day is filled with Christmas carols, hot cocoa, and plenty of family fun.
