JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. -- “Christmas in Olde Jonesborough” is featuring holiday activities each Saturday through Dec.  15.

Every Saturday Through December 15

Saturdays will offer a variety of events from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with caroling, visits with Santa, music and  storytelling.

Extended holiday shopping hours in Tennessee’s Oldest Town will last until until 6 p.m.

A festive holiday market will be available on the Plaza at the International Storytelling Center, featuring homemade Christmas decorations, trees and wreaths, as well as crafts and holiday items.

Santa will also be on site at the downtown Courthouse each Saturday for pictures and visits with children.

Children are asked to bring letters to Santa and drop them off in the mailbox located in front of the Courthouse by Dec. 15 to receive a reply from the jolly old man himself.

The public is encouraged to bring a new or gently used gifts for St. Nick to deliver to less fortunate children in the area.

December 8

One of the season’s favorite events, “At Home With Santa” will take place on Dec. 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center and downtown.

There will be pictures with Santa, cookie decorating, carriage rides, farm animals, children’s storytelling, games, activities and much more.

The Santa Mart will also be open, where children may purchase and wrap gifts for family members.

The much-anticipated Historic Jonesborough Christmas Parade will take place that evening starting at 6 p.m.

The lighted parade will travel through the festively decorated historic district from Boone Street to Main Street.

Immediately following the parade, the annual Turkey Toss will take place at the Courthouse. Free turkeys will be given away.

December 15

The series will end on Dec. 15 with the “Spirit of Christmas Stroll” from 1 to 3 p.m.

Churches in the downtown historic district will welcome guests to visit their sanctuaries and see their beautiful holiday decorations and hear music and hand bells.
