For this year’s weekend event, we are calling upon the Christmas Classic, A Christmas Carol, with a theme of:  The Spirit of Downtown Williamsport – Past, Present, and Future.

“Like the Christmas classic, Williamsport’s story is one of perseverance, hope and the rebirth that resonates today, possessing life and business lessons that are every bit as relevant as they were in Victorian England.  Giving thanks to the forefathers and business owners from the past, we will honor those individuals and business and organizations that made the Holidays special when it was the custom to Shop Downtown, just like the current SHOP LOCAL movement is doing.” - Thad Meckley, Historic Talk 2018

We welcome you to the 20th Anniversary of this annual tradition! Explore the beautiful homes, historic buildings and churches and experience their architectural significance from 9 am to 5 pm (Saturday only). There are countless other activities scheduled throughout the weekend to help kick-off the holiday season! You can experience all of these:  Tree Lighting & Carol Singing, Special Lecture, Artisan Holiday Market, Toy Train Expo, Duboistown Garden Club Holiday House, Children’s Activities (Saturday, YWCA), Musical Performances throughout the day (Saturday), Food Around Town, Uptown Music Collective (Fri.  Sat., CAC), and a display of Park Home Art & Antiques (Sunday, Park Home Meadows).  Hotel packages are available.  Visit our Facebook page: Victorian Christmas in Williamsport.  For detailed information visit our website at www.victorianchristmaspa.com.
