York Entertainment Society's Mission Statement

The York Entertainment Society (YES), a group of volunteers, working together to plan and promote events to bring prosperity and purpose to the Downtown York community with the annual York Christmas Parade as the main event each year. The YES will also plan and promote various Downtown York events throughout the year to raise funds for the annual parade while working in conjunction with the City of York.

Preserving A Long-Standing York Tradition

For  79  years, The York Christmas Parade has been a part of the Holiday Season in Historic Downtown York each and every year.  The parade beginnings started with the original circus families of York as they spent their winters here preparing for the next season's performances.  In an effort to preserve and grow this long-standing tradition, the York Entertainment Society was formed by a group of citizens and business owners. This dedicated group works throughout the year planning the parade in an effort to make it bigger and better every year while preserving its rich traditions and heritage.

Fund-Raising To Support 

The Christmas Parade

Throughout the year, the York Entertainment Society holds additional events for the purposes of entertaining the citizens of the greater York, SC area and raising funds to preserve the traditions of the annual parade, while making new memories for the next generation.
