2023 Santa Run Schedule

RVFD is pleased to announce the 2023 Santa Run schedule. Santa and other fire trucks will visit various neighborhoods in the Rockville area to welcome the Christmas season. .

Come to your window or come to the curb and wave to Santa as we pass through your neighborhood.

PLEASE keep your street clear!

Santa and his fire truck escort cannot visit houses where the streets (especially cul-de-sacs) are blocked by vehicles! Santa also cannot visit streets without a turn-around (i.e. Dead End Streets). Watch for Santa on the following evenings between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. We are also not able to visit every street in every neighborhood. The schedule is subject to change based on weather or emergency call volume.

For Santa visit requests or information, contact santa@rvfd.org

Follow us live and anticipate Santa’s arrival on Glympse on the day of the visit. Click HERE.

Please understand that Santa Claus and the RVFD are very busy during the month of December.  Our members do our very best to proudly continue this 60+ year tradition for our community.  To ensure your best chances to see Santa, we ask that you check the schedule, monitor RVFD Facebook for live updates and listen up for sirens.  Due to the increased size of our fire apparatus it has become impossible to drive down every street.  We also ask that you do not follow Santa in your car in attempts to get his attention; this is very dangerous and distracts the reindeer which may cause an accident.

  4. I loved the Fire Truck/Santa parade this year. They were in the Twinbrook neighborhood on the Rockville High School side Tuesday night. It seemed like more vehicles than ever this year. I was surprised to see that most were decorated with colorful holiday lights. Very pretty!
