The Mount Barker Pageant is a true community event and relies on donations, and we continue to thank these generous sponsors.
The Mount Barker Christmas Pageant continues to be the largest regional pageant in South Australia and, as well returning after a 2-year COVID-19 forced break, we are celebrating our 40th Anniversary this year! Many businesses and private citizens have supported us for quite a few of those years and we are deeply appreciative. You, and the continued support of our community, will enable us to go on staging this much-loved event.
This year’s pageant will be held on Saturday 3rd December 2022, leaving the Mt Barker Recreation Centre/oval at 10.30 am, travelling through the town and finishing in Walker Street.
We welcome your continued, and new, support and participation in this year’s pageant, which can be done in a number of ways:-
- PARTICIPATE IN THE PAGEANT!
$100 will entitle your business to enter a float / trailer / bus. Entries must include a festive/pageant spirit – use your Christmas imagination! Involve your staff, families, and friends. You will receive public acknowledgment in the local print media and commentary during the pageant.
- GOLD SPONSORSHIP
Sponsor one of our beautiful floats! A $500 donation will entitle you to display your business logo / signage on the float. Your logo will be featured on our website, Facebook page, official pageant program and poster (prominently displayed throughout Mt Barker in the weeks preceding the pageant.) You will also have the option of riding on the float with your staff, family and friends in costumes supplied by our Committee. You will receive public acknowledgment in the local print media and commentary during the pageant. (Signage to be supplied by you). Please note our floats are very popular and you may not always get your first choice.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE RE ENTRY CHANGES:
Due to the increasing popularity of the pageant resulting in participant numbers well in excess of 1000 people each year, and in the wake of COVID-19, it has become necessary to introduce a few measures to help make the day more enjoyable, and safer, for organisers, participants, and spectators. The new requirements to bring to your attention are:
- A maximum of 30 walkers per entry. 1 vehicle safely carrying a larger number is permitted.
- A cap of 100 entries, with none accepted beyond the cut-off date of 7th November.
See Entry Page for the full list of requirements.
We look forward to welcoming you back after the 2 year break, or meeting you for the first time!
