Theme Contest – 2021

The Commodores Club of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce are delighted to announce the dates of the official 113th Annual Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade happening this year on Dec. 15-19, 2021 when Newport Harbor turns into a winter wonderland for five spectacular nights. Nearly 100 beautifully decorated yachts and boats of all sizes set sail along a 14-mile parade route.

To ring in the season in advance, organizers invite the community to join the festivities and submit a theme for this year’s parade.

Submissions are open until June 1, 2021. The Boat Parade Committee will then select the top five themes. The community will then be encouraged to vote for their favorite theme. The winning theme will be announced soon after. A prize will be given for the winning theme!

Good luck!

A maximum of three themes can be submitted per individual, so pick your best ideas!
