Christmas Tree Lighting - CANCELED

Friday, December 4, 2020

A 1945 tradition in its 76th year!

Unfortunately, the forecast has put a damper on plans to kick off the York County, Virginia, Christmas season in Yorktown. The very difficult decision has been made to cancel the Tree Lighting Ceremony as we want it to be a comfortable and enjoyable event for all who attend. This was a limited capacity event, and if you pre-registered, you should have also received a cancellation email. 

As a longstanding community tradition, we know this is disappointing, but we do have a bit of good news - there will still be plenty of holiday cheer in town this weekend!

Our Christmas Market on Main will be taking place over two days for the first time in Yorktown history. This will help to spread out the crowds and hopefully allow more opportunities to support our small businesses. We do want to politely remind everyone to bring their face masks and be prepared to social distance.

Santa and Mrs. Claus are still quarantined at the North Pole but wanted to share a very special virtual message with everyone to help with you and your families a healthy and happy holiday. 

Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic—all York County sponsored and partner community events are subject to postponement or cancellation. This includes changes to dates, times, and locations.
