Christmas Parade

2023 McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic Main Street Parade

McLaren Vale Vintage and Classic 2023

The McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic Event is a great family day celebration of vintage and classic motoring, with a grand motorcade, vintage fashion, local wines, gourmet food and music.

In its 17th year, the event will see more than 500 vintage and classic motor vehicles parade along the streets of McLaren Vale against a breathtaking backdrop of wineries and vineyards. 

All vehicles will begin their journey at Serafino, before rolling out on the Main Street for the Grand Parade at 11am. The road will be closed for about an hour before the sea of vehicles will part ways and head towards participating wineries in the region where they will be on display amongst music, wine, and family fun.

Participants and spectators are also encouraged to dress in clothing from the era of their vehicle or simply their love of cars to be in the running for one of the prizes awarded for Best Dressed. Other awards included Best Vehicle and Motorcycle, Shop & Winery.

Community Christmas Parade

When we are able to, depending on Covid restrictions, we run a delightful, family friendly Christmas Parade!

The McLaren Vale Business & Tourism Association is committed to building the Christmas spirit in our community and has run “Light up the Piazza” in 2021 in lieu of the regular Christmas Pageant. 

We encourage our local businesses to join us with their festive spirit in mind to decorate their shop fronts and the public will have the opportunity to vote for the best dressed business.

We also did a “Selfie With Santa” display in the Piazza during December also.
