[ARCHIVED] Applications open for Christmas at the Market vendors and Christmas Parade participants

Christmas Wreaths

Christmas at the Market & Tree Lighting on Main Street on Dec. 10 from 4-8 p.m.

On Thursday, Dec. 10, join us for the Town’s annual Christmas at the Market and tree lighting. This year's events will follow all safety guidelines and will occur outside. Please maintain appropriate social distancing and wear a mask. 

From 4-8 p.m., Christiansburg Farmers Market vendors, local crafters and local businesses will be spaced out along Main Street from the square to the corner of Hickok Street. 

At 6:30 p.m., a tree lighting ceremony will take place in Town Square. The Town will also stream this live to its Facebook page here.

Please note that, in order to prepare for the market, there will be no parking on Main Street after 10 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 10, and Main Street will close at noon for vendor set up. Main Street will reopen by 10 p.m. that evening.

At this time, there is no rain date for the market and tree lighting, but a live stream of the tree lighting will occur at a later date in the event of inclement weather.

Christmas Parade at Uptown Christiansburg (formerly NRV Mall) on Dec. 11 from 7-9 p.m.

This year, in place of its traditional Christmas Parade, 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." 

In case of inclement weather, the decision to reschedule the parade will be made by noon on Dec. 11. The inclement weather date is Dec. 14.
