Christmas Market on Main

Saturday, December 2, 2017

Mark your calendars! Whether you're searching for a holiday gift for family, friends, or as a treat to yourself--you’re sure to find it at the Christmas Market on Main Street in York County, Virginia.

Yorktown’s Christmas Market on Main Street is the event shoppers look forward to all year. Vendors, artists, food trucks, strolling musicians, and antique cars will line the street in Historic Yorktown on Saturday, December 2 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be chestnuts roasting on an open fire, kids’ activities, and jolly greetings from Santa and Mrs. Claus! The reindeer may have to stay behind at the North Pole, but visiting Alpacas will be at the event, ready to stand in if needed.

The diverse selection of vendors will have a little of everything: paintings and prints; birdhouses and birdbaths; Bonsai trees; custom furniture; photography; pottery; sun catchers; vintage signs; wind chimes; wine accessories; painted glass; granite platters; gourmet dog treats; hand-made soaps and lotions; wreaths and greens; wooden toys; and Christmas ornaments.

Guests can choose from a variety of menu options from Historic Yorktown dining establishments like Water Street Grille, in addition to market vendors including Creekside Catering, Kathi’s Clam Chowder, Boyd’s Tasty Dogs, VA Blue Crab Co., Belmont Peanuts, Sinful Treats, and Nothing Bundt Cakes. Other delicious goods for sale include: roasted chestnuts; soups; crab cakes and lobster rolls; seasonings, blends, spices and dips; jams, jellies, and syrups; candy and confections; pies and brownies; kettle corn, peanuts and snack mixes; and a variety of kid-friendly options.

The Peninsula Model Train Club will have a display in the lower level of York Hall from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and the York County Fire & Life Safety will have the department’s oldest fire truck, a 1955 Dodge, on display at the corner of Main and Nelson Streets for most of the day. Pending the weather, additional antique cars will be parked along Main Street for guests to admire.

Historic buildings and museums, including the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, Yorktown Battlefield, the York County Historical Museum, Custom House, Watermen’s Museum, and Museum on Main will be open that day, and decorated for the holidays.
