Buford, Georgia – The Buford Business Alliance (BBA) is hosting their annual Holiday Parade and Festival on December 2nd, 2017 on Main Street in Historic Buford, GA.  This year’s event marks the 15th year the city has welcomed Santa’s arrival the first Saturday of December at the annual event. 

Event organizer Dannella Burnett of Oakwood Occasions commented that the event “brings in over 1500 parade participants, 600 plus children during stage performances, and plenty of opportunities for business and vendors to share their products and services with the community each year.” 



Each year the Buford Business Alliance teams up with the City of Buford to host this one of a kind event that shuts down main street for a chance for families to experience a one of a kind Holiday event.  Parade participation is a great mix of local schools, businesses, and organizations that get to share their holiday spirit with on-lookers on Main Street. 

Buford Business Alliance President Robier Acebo stated: “That the BBA puts on two events a year for the community — our annual Business Expo in the spring and this event specifically designed to show our love to the great Buford community.” 

This annual outdoor event happens rain or shine. For those interested, there are several ways to participate and registration is required to get involved. There are still opportunities to participate in this year’s event. For inquiries about becoming a vendor, participating in stage performances, or join the parade contact Oakwood Occasions

Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy the Free festival and performances throughout the day.

When: Saturday, December 2nd, 2017 from 11 AM to 4 PM
