A note from the Parade Organizers:
The Santa Clara Parade of Champions has always been a celebration of people, non-profits, businesses, organizations, and traditions; bridging communities in Santa Clara and beyond for over 50 years.
2020 was a challenge, we admit it, but we rose to the challenge by hosting our first ever VIRTUAL Parade to honor our community and front line heroes and celebrate the amazing community spirit that kept us strong and united through this Pandemic.
We can't wait to gather and celebrate together again!
