The Storybook Cavalcade is the largest parade of its kind in the intermountain west, drawing thousands of spectators each year from Cedar City and throughout the region.

  • Two long weekends of storytelling, dancing, music, musicals, meeting Santa, Christmas lights and trees, food, drink and a Christmas Village
  • An early December event

The festival starts at the end of November and goes all the way through the Christmas holiday. The Storybook Cavalcade parade marches down Main Street not once, not twice but three times throughout the fest. The Enchanted Forest is a forest filled with childhood favorites. The Celebration of Trees features 22 exquisitely decorated designer trees. Santaland, Cedar City's version of the North Pole, comes complete with the jolly old soul himself. 

When: An early December event for two long weekends

Where: Heritage Center

Fees: Fees may vary by event

Details: There are many song and dance numbers at the Heritage Center in the evenings to wind your snow filled days with. Getting to the Heritage Center is easy.
