The Playford Community Christmas Pageant is the vision of the late Don Hardy and the first pageant procession was held in 2003. This event has seen around 50 community groups & businesses that service the Playford Council area participate in the Pageant each year since then. We want to see the event grow with the community participating and the public engaging in their local community and the wonderful groups that support it.
The Pageant is organised and run by a very dedicated and hard working group of volunteers who care deeply for their community. Volunteers perform a variety of roles from helping with fundraising, marshalling at the event and many more things that keep our Pageant going and make it the best experience for themselves, the participants and the audience. Without them, there would be no Pageant, so we are thankful to anyone who can offer their support in any capacity.
We are 100% community run and funded, meaning every cent we raise goes directly into the cost of holding the event each year. Fundraising is vital to the Pageant and we hope to be able to see more activities with more of our volunteers in the future to help support the event and keep it going each year. Our traditional annual raffle is a key fundraising event as well as other events and activities organised by the Committee to help make the Pageant bigger and better. So if you see us, please do not hesitate to offer your support.
We hope to see you out there in the community and on Pageant day.
Participants are the stars of our Pageant. Any group, individual or business that has a focus on or serves the Playford community is eligible to join the parade. We enjoy making the Pageant as colourful and vibrant as possible with decorative vehicles, festive floats and lots of characters. The groups we have in our parade have lots of fun demonstrating their skills and activities in a safe and considerate manner for the audience and the general community.
We vet groups based on a criteria of serving the Playford community, so groups from outside the area can join as long as they serve the community with no overlap from another group in the area. We invite you to join our Pageant parade by filling in the application form via the button below.
Volunteers are the Heart and Soul of our Pageant. They come in all ages, backgrounds and come from all walks of life. Many of our volunteers only offer a few hours each year in helping on the day or with our fundraising efforts during the year. Each new volunteer brings new skills, ideas and abilities to help make our Pageant bigger and better.
Our volunteers perform a variety of roles from Marshaling on the day to keep our audience safe, fundraising to help pay for our many costs, Photography, crafting useful items, providing professional advice and guidance in various areas, managing our online presence and many other things that keep our Pageant running and enable it to become bigger and better each year.
We are fortunate to have a very dedicated and hard working team in our committee. Comprising of a few elected committee positions and a number of dedicated people in specialised areas to help guide our volunteers in the organisation and operation of the Pageant. We seek to expand our team in a number of ways, so if you feel you have something to contribute, please do not hesitate to apply to us.
We encourage anyone who can contribute anything to apply to us, from a little bit of time to help with fundraising to helping our dedicated committee in organising and running the event.
