Christmas in Middleburg

2016: Friday, December 2nd Tree Lighting; Saturday, December 3rd Parade Day; Sunday, December 4th Foxcroft Pageant 

Middleburg In Snow

Start your advent in Middleburg! On the first Saturday in December the community becomes a Christmas experience like no other - Christmas in Middleburg.

Middleburg is the perfect setting for evoking the Christmas spirit - tree lighting, a Christmas parade, shopping, caroling, and so much more.  Give peace to the body, mind, and soul.  Stay at one of the picturesque inns or the incomparable Salamander Resort and Spa.  Relax in the countryside without missing a moment of the Christmas magic.   

Over 10,000 visitors make Christmas in Middleburg a family tradition.  A New Jersey visitor fondly recalls “the Christmas feeling you can only get in Middleburg”. Join one of the most fun filled family festivals of the year in Middleburg with activities, special events, great eats, the famous Middleburg Hunt Review, a mile-long Christmas parade. Afterwards, experience a Middleburg evening in our bistros, cafes, pubs, and restaurants joining in the Spirits of Middleburg.

Come share our joy with us! (John 15-11) Begin your Christmas season in peace and love so that maybe we'll all find ourselves saying, "I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year." - Charles Dickens, Ebenezer Scrooge, A Christmas Carol.
