Old-Fashioned Downtown Christmas

Mark your calendars!

Old Fashioned Downtown Christmas

November 19th 4-9pm!

Come stroll through the streets of historic downtown Athens and be a part of our Santa Shop Hop by visiting merchants for a gift certificate give away. Take a ride in horse-drawn carriages, hop aboard the trackless train,and enjoy outdoor Christmas movies. Also, be sure to stop by Market Park and take a spin in our outdoor ice skating rink. You don’t want to miss our tree lighting and Christmas carols promptly at 6:30pm. The Athens Area council for the arts will be making various children’s crafts and, direct from the North Pole, Santa will be on hand for pictures. Please be sure to check out our local vendors and–of course–come hungry and be prepared to dine at the various food trucks. We will have something for everyone. What better way to kick off the holiday season than in downtown Athens?
