Sat 3rd December 2022

Christmas is Coming...

Kaiapoi is Ready!

The Kaiapoi Promotions executive, along with the Event Management team, would like to acknowledge the many people and organisations that provide funding or give their time freely to this event. From the suppliers who go above and beyond, to the groups that build the spectacular parade floats, all aspects of the day are carried out with great enthusiasm and professionalism. It is heart-warming to see the people of Kaiapoi demonstrating the community
spirit that makes this event the success it is.

Three major events peppered with excitement, fun and family entertainment.

Carnival - Street Market and Parade


From 9.30am located on the East side of Williams Street between Hilton Street and Raven Quay.
The Carnival will provide entertainment on the Community Stage and fun activities within the
Free Family Fun Zone or relax in the Chill Zone.
Experience your favorite commercial and local vendor stalls with some very entertaining buskers thrown in for good measure.


To be held in and around Williams Street. The Street Market will be full of local community
groups and businesses giving locals and visitors the opportunity to see what they’re about.
They will be showcasing their group information and wares. If we’re lucky there will be some
good old fashioned home baking for sale. Street performers and buskers will be providing lively entertainment.


Starting at 1.30pm at the corner of Charles and Jones St the parade will travel west to Williams St, turning south along Williams Street before turning east and ending on Hilton Street. Many of the floats will remain on display at the Carnival.
Mix all these exciting ingredients together and you have a cracker recipe for a highly enjoyable festive carnival. And who could forget the Big Man himself? SANTA!
