Christmas Lights & Lantern Parade

Menter Aberystwyth’s largest event, the Christmas Lights and Lantern Parade – usually held on the last Saturday of November.

The day includes a bustling Christmas Craft & Food Market on Baker Street and Seion Chapel, open from midday through to 7pm. During the afternoon, we also have a range of local talent providing entertainment before the lantern parade begins its procession from St Michael’s Church to Owain Glyndwr Square.

The parade is a spectacle, and includes the Aberystwyth Silver Band – spreading their festive cheer before the Christmas Tree lights are switched on and carols are enjoyed!

Planning for the event usually starts around May – June, if you want to be involved, please do get in touch. We rely on the help and generosity of many local groups and individuals to ensure the day is a success.
