New Member Update: Christmas in July Festival, Inc.

The Christmas in July Festival is one of the best, old fashioned summer festivals in the South drawing thousands to historic downtown West Jefferson, N.C. each July! Come enjoy the very best in live traditional mountain music, over 100 handmade arts and crafts vendors and numerous food vendors featuring a variety of delicious festival foods. Also, you don’t want to muss the annual Civil War re-enactments held throughout the day at the West Jefferson Municipal Park. These include demonstrations, battles, meet and greet with the Generals and a tour of their campsites. Children’s activities, roving performers, non-profits and the Farmers’ Market are also part of this year’s festival. A Community Stage representing talent from local community groups and individuals include dancing, clogging, singing and music. Christmas tree growers are invited to join the “People’s Choice Favorite Christmas Tree” competition and enter their best looking tree for festival goers to vote for their favorite. The event will be held rain or shine.

Nowhere else will you find such an array of local and regional music, food vendors, fun and festivities for the entire family than at Christmas in July in Downtown West Jefferson! For more information, visit us online at
