Jacksonville, Oregon celebrates the holidays and our past with Victorian Christmas.
While the world has changed in 2020, we want to continue with the Christmas Spirit as much as possible.The Victorian Christmas season will kick-off with a virtual Caroling & Tree Lighting on Shop Small Saturday – 5:00 pm, November 28, 2020
Unfortunately, due to state health mandates our Christmas Parade has been cancelled this year.
Festivities continue on weekends leading up to Christmas. The celebration is a wonderful memory-making opportunity for families and friends and it has become a cherished tradition in the Rogue Valley. We decorate the town all in natural greenery with white lights to evoke Christmases past. But the activities will keep any of today’s visitors entertained.
On weekends between December 5 – 20 you can take family pictures with Father Christmas*, enjoy strolling carolers – some in vintage costumes. Horse drawn wagon rides are also available on weekends in December starting at the new City Hall on 5th St 11:30am-4pm.
*There is no charge for taking pictures with Father Christmas. We ask that all those 5+ wear a face covering and observe social distancing guidelines. You are welcome to take your own photos as there is no professional photographer. You will find Father Christmas at 155 North 3rd Street, in the Dan McGeorge Photo Gallery 11am-4pm.
