Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade


If you’re looking for a fun, family-friendly event, then the Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade is the place to be!

Since the early 1960s, this festive parade has been a favorite around town. And while it once had a “Christmas in July” theme, the Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade is now an annual – and highly anticipated – late October event. This year's parade is the 50th annual, fittingly enough with the theme of "Palm Desert on Parade--Through the Decades."

With a full list of activities planned, including the Palm Desert Rotary Pancake Breakfast, a Golf Cart Car Show, a Kids' Play Zone and more, families can experience an entire day of festive fun for everyone.

Attending the Event

The parade itself starts on Sunday, October 26, 2014 at 1:00 p.m., and the parade route will follow El Paseo, westbound, from San Luis Rey to Ocotillo. Finding a place to park won't be a problem since there are several parking lots and a parking structure in the area. You can find a detailed list of parking locations on the Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade website, along with applications to enter your golf cart in the parade or set up a vendor booth at the event.

We hope to see you there!
