The parade, like many public events, has suffered from finding its place during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Last year, following the resurgence of another variant of COVID, the parade was cancelled. However, the association has worked in conjunction with the City of Owensboro to revitalize the parade for 2022.

So save that date. The parade will take place on Saturday, November 19 and officials are now accepting applications.

In addition to accepting requests for additional floats, bands and entries, the Owensboro-Daviess County Christmas Parade Association is also accepting requests from vendors, including food trucks. In fact, they’re encouraging local foodies to let their favorite food trucks know they can be a part of the parade festivities this year.

Do you have a favorite food truck here in Owensboro? Let them know that we will be accepting nominations from vendors on our website, christmasparade.net, through October 31 to participate in the 2022 Owensboro-Daviess County Christmas Parade!

See! I will admit it. I’ve always been a big fan of the Owensboro Christmas Parade. In fact, for years, Dave Spencer, Jane Head and I (and sometimes Angel and Barb) called play-by-play for Time Warner/Spectrum Cable. It was always one of my favorite live events of the year.

We’re thrilled to have it back for 2022. We missed it and we know many of you did too. The Owensboro-Daviess County Christmas Parade has always been touted as the place “Where Kentucky starts Christmas”. And the official start of the holiday season will begin at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 19!

There’s no doubt that Second Street in Owensboro will turn into Holly, Jolly Winter Wonderland.
