Here’s what you need to know about Victoria’s IEOA Truck Light Parade this year


Hoist up your jingle bells and chuck on your coziest winter gear for a dazzling, family-favourite Christmas activity!

While details are still being rolled out, the dates for the much anticipated IEOA Truck Light Parade have been announced and will be making its way through Victoria in early December.

This year’s 24th annual IEOA Truck Light Parade will take place on December 2nd at 5:30 p.m. starting at the Breakwater District before making its way through Oak Bay, back into Victoria, through Saanich and out to the West Shore communities. 

A fleet of over 80 commercial trucks and buses will light up the streets of Victoria for the annual truck light parade and food drive, hosted by the Island Equipment Owners Association. 

Last year, the parade finished up at Bear Mountain after the closure of Western Speedway where it had previously ended, but this year, the final destination will be in Colwood’s Royal Bay!

So, whether you’re in downtown Victoria or the heart of Langford, you’ll get to witness the countless trucks wrapped in their brightest and holiday best. 

Over the years, the Truck Light Convoy has donated over 170,000 pounds of food and $84,000 in fundraising in support of local food banks. 

Here’s when and where you can see the new IEOA Truck Light Parade route with approximate times below: 

  • 5:30 p.m.: Breakwater District/Ogden Point (start)
  • 6 p.m.: Oak Bay Avenue
  • 6:30 p.m.: Yates Street
