We regret to inform you that the Uptown Shelby Association Board of Directors and Staff have made the difficult decision to cancel the Uptown Shelby Christmas Parade scheduled for December 17th, 2023, due to the weather. A lot of thought and conversation went into making this decision, as it was a challenging one.

We worked hard for months to create a fun, family-friendly event for the whole community while showcasing historic Uptown Shelby. Our Board and Staff feel that the safety of everyone involved is the priority, and the weather forecast does not allow us to host a parade safely. Though we advertised the event as “rain or shine,” the weather predicted for Sunday would create potentially unsafe conditions for all parties involved. Unfortunately, scheduling does not allow for a makeup date due to the complexities of street closures, rentals, and overall logistics.

We appreciate your patience and understanding and are incredibly grateful for your support in the 2023 Christmas parade. If you have questions, please reach out to us at or via phone, 704-484-3100.
