The Christmas in Olde Jonesborough series will kick off with Whoville on Saturday, November 24 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. complete with the Grinch and other characters. Dress as your favorite Whoville character and get a “grinch treat”. Activities, movies and popcorn will be located throughout town. Then at 6 p.m., we welcome you to join us as we officially kick off the Christmas season with the Lighting of the Tree. Music and Storytelling will lead up to the official lighting of the Spruce beside the Washington County Courthouse in downtown. Also on Saturday, support local businesses by shopping local for Small Business Saturday in downtown Jonesborough and enjoy extended shopping hours from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.
Each Saturday will offer a variety of events from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. along with music, storytelling and extended holiday shopping hours in Tennessee’s Oldest Town. Santa will also be on site at the downtown Courthouse each Saturday for pictures and visits with children. Be sure to bring your letters to Santa and drop them off in the mailbox by December 15th and receive a reply from the jolly old man himself. The Christmas Market will be available on the Plaza of the International Storytelling Center featuring handmade crafts, jewelry and holiday items. Free gift wrapping will also be offered on any purchases made in Downtown Jonesborough during the Saturday events.
