Christmas Parade

Each December, the Town holds its annual Christmas at the Market, Tree Lighting Ceremony and Christmas Parade.

This year, the market and tree lighting will be virtual. Please visit for more information.

In place of its traditional Christmas Parade, this year the Town will be offering a reverse parade at Uptown Christiansburg (formerly NRV Mall) on Dec. 11 from 7-9 p.m. Floats will be stationary (parked) in the New River Community College (NRCC) section of the Uptown Christiansburg parking lot while spectators slowly drive by on New River Road. This year's parade theme is "Light up the tree, it's Christmas you see."

Floats will be spaced to adhere to social distancing guidelines, and there is a limit to the number of participants on each float dependent on its size. Click here for a map of the event layout.
