Celebrating 76 years of Holiday Memories

Experience the magic for yourself!

A spectacle of sight and sound, the Novant Health Thanksgiving Day Parade is a Charlotte tradition with six decades of history behind it, growing to its impressive reputation as the fourth largest of its kind in the country and the biggest in the Southeast. In 2019, the event drew 110,000 live spectators and 2 million household viewers via broadcast. People were watching online all over the world from Washington to Mexico to Sweden! In 2020, we produced a virtual parade with local performers and looking back on some of our favorite parade memories.  Last year, 2021, we celebrated our Diamond Anniversary of 75 years in-person! We also hosted our first ever night parade filled with lights, music, and ingenuity.

This year, 2022, we will host the 76th Thanksgiving Parade and our 2nd night parade. Don't miss this year's event on Wednesday night, November 23.
