Mistletoe Market - Yorktown Market Days

Saturday, December 11, 2021

The holiday shopping season has officially kicked off in Yorktown!

The Historic Yorktown waterfront will transform into a Christmas wonderland for the final Yorktown Market Days event of the year. During the extended hours of 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Dec. 11, children of all ages are invited to participate in this FREE fun for the community.

Schedule of Events

9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Shop the market for wreaths and seasonal decorations; peanuts, potato chips, and popcorn; holiday gift baskets; chowder and soups; baked goods; jams, jellies, and syrups; homemade soaps and candles; gourmet dog treats and other Virginia produced and made products. More than a dozen local artists will also be set up selling paintings, jewelry, stained glass, photography, painted gourds, and apparel made from alpaca fleece.

9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The York County Historical Museum will present a model train exhibit inside the Freight Shed. The details of this extraordinary display are simply incredible to see in person. It is free and open to the public.

9 a.m. to 3 p.m. All Aboard the Polar Express! For the first time, our trackless train will begin rides at the start of the market and it run until the market closes.

10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Families are invited to the grassy area in front of the fountain to learn how to make colonial ornaments with the Watermen’s Museum and to witness a live ice carving demonstration until noon.

12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Guests can enjoy a special outdoor holiday performance by Centerstage Academy on the fountain green.
1:15 p.m. Everyone is invited to dress in their holiday best and gather in front of the Freight Shed to march in the Toyland Parade as it makes its way through Riverwalk Landing led by the Fifes and Drums of York Town. The parade steps off at 1:30. This is the thirteenth year for the community tradition.

Free parking is available in several lots throughout Historic Yorktown, including three on Ballard Street at York Hall, the County Admin Building, and the Courthouse. Spots fill up quickly in the two-level garage on Water Street., but the walk from those other lots is a short distance. The free Yorktown Trolley also runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day.

Yorktown Market Days is always rain or shine. When it rains, the vendors and artists move into the lower level of the parking terrace. The extra activities, however, may be canceled due to inclement weather, and will not be rescheduled. Visitors are encouraged to follow Visit Yorktown’s social media accounts for all event-related changes and announcements.

Special thanks to the 2021 Cultivator Sponsors State Farm Agent Mark Irwin and Langley Federal Credit Union. Additional recognition goes to Harvester Sponsor Amory Funeral Home for entertainment and Seed Sower Sponsor Parks Orthodontics for providing all the kid-friendly activities.
