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 12-18 feet apart 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.
The Christiansburg Farmers Market is held from May-October and operates every Thursday from 3-7 p.m. on Hickok Street in downtown Christiansburg.
While we encourage customers to utilize online ordering whenever possible this season, our vendors will still be set up on Hickok Street each Thursday during market hours. Market staff will monitor customer density and restrict entry to the market as needed to ensure there is ample room for social distancing. We will also enforce social distancing guidelines by spacing vendors 10 feet apart, allowing only one person per family into the market area at a time, and ensuring there is no mingling.
*Note: The Farmers’ Market Committee has been combined into the Town’s Central Business District Committee. The Central Business District Committee meets as needed, and notices of upcoming meetings are posted on our website calendar and physically at Christiansburg Town Hall.
