Christmas and Holiday Events

In addition to Holiday Light Tours, many of Virginia's most breathtaking estates and historic properties open their doors to the public during the holidays, showcasing the spirit of the season with stunning decorations, Yuletide treats, and festive music. Many sites offer special candlelight tours, wreath-making workshops, and Christmastide celebrations.

Parades and tree lighting ceremonies are the perfect way to kick off your holiday season. Virginia main streets transform into winter wonderlands while jingle bells and smells of hot cider fill the air during these special events. Find a local event to attend below and bring on the holiday cheer!

Setting aside time to see a live performance with friends and family is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit. Live symphony orchestras like The Nutcracker and many more, make the spirit of the season come alive. Find a holiday performance to attend below.
