Battle Creek Christmas Parade

Wondering where to catch the best views of the parade?

The parade will kick off at approximately 5:40 p.m. from Champion Street and N. Washington Avenue (Federal Center), and continue down N. Washington Avenue to Michigan Avenue. 

The parade turns east onto Michigan Avenue and continues through downtown Battle Creek where it ends at Commerce Point, near Division Street. The front of the parade should arrive around 6 p.m. near the intersection of Michigan Avenue and McCamly Street.

Join us most anywhere along the route (green line below) for great views!

For those not wanting to get come out in person, we are pleased to announce that AccessVision will once again be covering the Parade Live from downtown! Additionally, the parade can be viewed throughout the following month on AccessVision.

This year marks the 32nd year AccessVision volunteers will brave the cold weather to bring all the sights and sounds of the Annual Battle Creek Christmas Parade to the warmth of the viewer’s living room. (See details below route map)

AccessVision will air the parade “live” from in front of its location at 70 West Michigan Avenue on Comcast Cable Channels 17 & 917, and on AT&T U-verse channel 99. In order for AT&T customers to watch the parade, they need to select “channel 99”, click on “Battle Creek Area – AccessVision”, then select “AccessVision 17” and select “OK”.
