2020 Mechanicsville Parade

Cancellation Message

The difficult decision has been made by the Mechanicsville Rotary Club to cancel the 2020 Mechanicsville Christmas Parade due to the uncertainty and risk of potential spread of COVID-19 and the organization’s concern for the health and safety of our loyal participants, attendees, vendors and volunteers. 

We did not come to this decision lightly. We as volunteers spend countless hours planning, staging and working this large-scale, free community event. It is a labor of love. 

The Ruritan Club of Mechanicsville  raises funds every year from sales of concessions for the Hanover Christmas Mother. Please take a moment of your time to donate to this amazing organization in the amount (or more) that you would have spent on concessions during the parade. Donations may be made via the link below or sent to: Hanover Christmas Mother , PO Box 39, Doswell, VA  23047

Thank you for your understanding.

Save the date for the 2021 Mechanicsville Christmas Parade, December 5th, 2021.


Founded in 1992, the club is the lead organizer of the Mechanicsville Christmas Parade. The club also works with the Hanover Sheriff's Department to provide Thanksgiving Baskets for the needy, Helps fund the Hanover Sheriff Office's Project Lifesaver, has helped build a Habitat House, partners with Mechanicsville Elementary School to ensure no child goes hungry and helps promote a healthy community through many other fundraising and volunteer activities.
