Christmas in Williamsburg: Santa! Christmas Town. Colonial Traditions.
Williamsburg is your Christmas destination! Santa makes regular visits throughout the Historic Triangle, and we know his favorite spots. Joy, laughter and cheer are in the air at Busch Gardens’ Christmas Town where the merriment of the season is spotlighted with Broadway-style shows and millions of twinkling lights.
Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Victory Center continue the tradition of A Colonial Christmas with a glimpse of 17th- and 18th-century holiday traditions with special programs. At the Yorktown Victory Center, hear accounts of Christmas and winter in military encampments during the American Revolution and glimpse holiday preparations on a 1780s farm. Colonial Williamsburg serves up music, dance and merriment with a multitude of holiday events including a Scottish New Year’s Eve celebration.
In Historic Yorktown, join the Christmas Tree Lighting procession on December 5 and enjoy the lights of the Boat Parade on December 6. A Saturday morning holiday market, Yorktown Market Days, on December 13 is followed by a Toyland Parade, complete with Santa and Mrs. Claus and a ride on the Polar Express.
With our Premium Outlets and local shops, we have a wide selection of gifts for Christmas giving, and big sales to welcome the New Year.
