The tradition of the Benalla Festival Street Parade has been delighting our community and visitors for over 50 years with colourful floats, carnival characters, entertainers and bands. The parade is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our community, its creativity and showcase our many groups, schools, organisations and businesses to community and visitors.

This year’s parade is proudly sponsored by Lima South Quarry. The Benalla Festival Advisory Committee is encouraging participants to be creative with their entry so spectators who line the city streets get to enjoy the colour, movement, music and fanfare of this unique and much loved event.

The parade will commence on Saturday 11 November at 2pm from the Botanical Gardens entrance and make its way over the Monash Bridge to the Carrier Street roundabout before returning back along Bridge Street.

This year’s Benalla Festival theme is Good Vibrations … a celebration of music and dance in our community. Entries should aim to reflect the 2017 theme. Be sure to be involved in this fun and creative display of community spirit and personality. Remember, your participation is limited only by your imagination!
