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.
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.
