Making Victorian Christmas a Community Supported Event
Jacksonville, Oregon celebrates the holidays and our past with Victorian Christmas. Coordinated by the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce the celebration spans several weekends beginning the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
This celebration is a cherished tradition for many of us here in Jacksonville and in the Rogue Valley region at large. But as many other things in life, this celebration continues to increase in expense.
Between city decorations, costs of costumes, decorating the tree and weekend entertainment the annual expenses are now close to $14,000. And we would like to add even more to this celebration. So as we plan on how to make this year’s event even more memorable, we are hoping to increase the support from both the residential and business members of our community.
Residents and Friends of Jacksonville can make their donations
- In Cash, Check or by Credit Card at the Chamber of Commerce Office/Visitor Information Center next to the Post Office at the corner of N. Oregon and C Street
- Mailing a check to Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce, PO Box 33, Jacksonville, OR 97530 (note Victorian Christmas Donation in the memo field)
- Donating by credit card online HERE.
