Like so many things in 2020, this year’s Christmas Pageant will be unlike any other, with the iconic moving off the streets and into Adelaide Oval for the first time ever.

While the crowds of over 300,000 will not be able to watch this year’s event live, around 25,000 South Aussies will be allowed into the Oval to welcome Father Christmas to town.

Tickets are being made available via a ballot system, which opens to the public from 10am this morning.

As many as 20,000 tickets will be made available to the general public, those who register should know if they are successful in securing tickets within the coming days.

Registrations for tickets to the November 14 twilight pageant will close at 10pm on Friday evening, however, organisers have reminded South Australians that there is no need for a mad rush to the site when registrations open.

Pageant Director Brian Gilbertson told Mix 102.3 that you just need to register before the closing time.

“We want it to be as fair as possible, so rather than it being a first-in-first-dressed, people come in and just register calmly over 36 hours, so there’s no rush to do it,” Mr Gilbertson said.


“Just as long as get it completed between 10am this morning and 10pm Friday evening.”

Registrations for the ballot are taking place via ticketing website Ticketek.
