ChristmasVille Activities


If you’ve ever attended ChristmasVille, you know there are a TON of fun and memorable things to do and see throughout the festival. What you may not have realized is that many of them are coordinated by local organizations and businesses. Community-coordinated activities taking place in Old Town during the 4-day festival are submitted each year for consideration in being approved and marketed as officially sanctioned activities during ChristmasVille. No funding or coordination is provided by ChristmasVille; however, activities are promoted on the festival’s website and corresponding literature.

The opportunity to host an Activity for the 2023 ChristmasVille festival has passed. Check back in mid-2024 for information on how you can take advantage of the benefits that come with being a featured vendor for next year’s festival.

Note: Approved, officially sanctioned activities are not to include the ChristmasVille name in their event title in an effort to protect ChristmasVille sponsors and respect the regulations of the trademark. Proper language will be provided for promotional purposes.
