About this Event

Help give Elmer’s Great North Parade herd the send off they deserve!

Come and say goodbye at a special weekend of celebration at Newcastle Racecourse on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th November. Elmer’s Great North Parade Farewell will see all big and little elephants come together for the final time, at a special event for the whole family to enjoy. Simply book your ticket and drop in for as long as you like on that day.

Relaxed SEND session (10am - 11am on Sunday)

Come and say goodbye to the elephants in a relaxed atmosphere without the hustle and bustle of the rest of the weekend. We'll switch off the music and fairground rides so you and your family can enjoy them in a quiet and calm environment.

Browse our market with stallholders selling gifts, crafts and confectionery and buy your official Elmer merchandise as a souvenir of the trail. Many of our own Elmer artists will be there, so you could pick up some special one off pieces of art, inspired by their designs or ask them to sign your souvenir guide, also on sale at the event.

You are then more than welcome to stay for the rest of the day should you wish.

A full day of family fun! (from 11am - 4pm)

As well as a last chance to see your favourite Elmer for the last time, you can enjoy a full day of fun including fairground rides, music, face painting, and entertainment, hosted by Metro Radio.
