The Holiday Season in the Northern Shenandoah Valley & Eastern Panhandle

This time of year is a fun time in the Eastern Panhandle and Northern Shenandoah Valley with so many fun Holiday events! I will be sharing just one event below for the surrounding counties. Though it will be tough to pick just one, I wanted to highlight just some of the areas happening this holiday season. If you need more ideas or info, don’t hesitate to reach out! 


Winchester Christmas Parade - 11/27, 7pm, Loudoun St. Downtown Winchester, VA

Kick off the holiday season with the Winchester City parade and tree lighting! This fun event kicks off at 7pm. Admission is free, parking is $5 in the garages, and streets close at 6:30pm! Santa will be there too!


Old Tyme Christmas - Dec 9-10, 9am-4pm, Harpers Ferry, WV

It is hard to pick just one event for all the wonderful small towns in West Virginia. But I must share about the Olde Tyme Christmas in Historic Harpers Ferry - on a regular day in Harpers Ferry I melt at its quaintness and unique feel - but during the holiday season it truly transforms. There are several activities for the whole family, music, shops, and vendors. Santa Claus makes an appearance and ride the cutest Christmas trolley through town - or perhaps a horse and buggy!


Christmas on Main - Dec 2, 12pm-7pm, Front Royal, WV

Come enjoy a Christmas carnival for the little ones, vendors at the Merry Market, and the Christmas Parade which kicks off at 4pm!


South Berkeley Christmas 5k, Tree Lighting, & Parade - Dec 3 at 2pm, Inwood, WV

Come get your energy out and join in on a long standing traditional run in Inwood, WV! You will feel the holiday spirit - that's for sure! Stay after for the tree lighting and town parade.


Christmas Festival of Lights in Augusta, WV has a wonderful light show of 225 exhibits that can be seen from the comfort of your car. Join this fun event from 5:30pm-10:00pm until January 1, 2024.


Winter Wonderland, Clear Brook, VA - Begins Nov 24 through the New Year!

A Holiday season would not be complete without a trip to Clear Brook’s walking light show! Enjoy the lights as they glimmer on the lake, and grab a hot chocolate if it is super cold! Some nights, Santa Claus makes an appearance.


Cocoa Crawl in Downtown Berkeley Springs, WV - 5pm-9pm

Follow the Cocoa Crawl map and visit various shops - each boast a different treat or flavor for the cocoa! Complete your shopping all in one night!


Christmas in the Valley Drive Thru Lights, Nov 24-Dec 31 - Fri & Sat, 5-9pm

If walking up at the Clear Brook lights is not your cup of tea, head south for this drivable light show! After the show, stop at Christmas Crafters Village for shopping and treats. Located in Woodstock, VA right off I-81!
