Old Orcutt Christmas Parade December 14

Participant Applications Available

A long standing tradition of Orcutt's holiday celebration, the Old Orcutt Christmas Parade is scheduled for Saturday, December 14 beginning at noon down Clark Avenue in Old Orcutt. Community groups, school groups, businesses and citizens are encouraged to decorate a float, sing carols, deck the streets and participate!  Entry applications are available at Old Town Orcutt Market, 405 East Clark, Old Orcutt, or by visiting orcuttchirstmasparade.org and are due by November 30.  “The website includes all the information groups need to either enter the parade,” says Kat Scot, one of the parade’s volunteer organizers. Completed applications may be returned to Old Town Market.  

This year, the parade will honor Friends of the Orcutt Library as the grand marshal.  “The Friends are all volunteers, and they do a great job of raising the funds that keep the Orcutt Library open an accessible to all of us,” says Scott. “The Friends commitment to Orcutt makes them the perfect honoree this year.”

The parade is a fun small town event with bands, dancers, floats, and Santa has made a guest appearance every year since the parades inception in 1961 and this year is no exception.
