Hometown Christmas


The Christmas season officially kicks off on Main Street in Stuart Friday, November 30th at 5 p.m. with the third annual “Grand Illumination” tree lighting ceremony in front of the courthouse at 6 p.m. Merchants on Main Street will extend their Friday hours until 8 p.m., allowing plenty of time for holiday shopping. A new feature this year is "Holiday Duck Hunt," where participants are encouraged to find Santa's 12 rubber ducks hiding among the fun on Main Street and turn them in for a prize.


Hometown Christmas continues Saturday, December 1st with a day jam-packed with holiday celebrations and plenty more shopping opportunities, including the Mistletoe Market at Stuart Farmers’ Market (10 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and holiday bazaars at Stuart United Methodist Church (7 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and Stuart Elementary School PTO’s “winter blender” (8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.). Check out the Festival of Trees at the Patrick County Library Open House, featuring all county elementary schools (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), include your family pet in Hometown Christmas with the Charlie Brown Christmas-themed photos at Pet Provisions from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and don’t forget to stop by Circle K for some free hot chocolate!


Returning this year will be "Passports to the Holidays," that can be stamped at all participating merchants and turned in to the Chamber of Commerce office Saturday between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. These passports will be available at participating merchants, the Chamber office, and W.H.E.O. Three lucky winners will receive a very special Patrick County gift basket.


The 47th annual Christmas Parade will wind its way downtown Stuart starting at 2 p.m. Organized by One Family Productions, this year's parade is themed “Sliding into Christmas,” and features the Dixie Youth Ozone Virginia State Champions as Grand Marshal.


Patrick County’s Hometown Christmas weekend is a collaborative effort of local merchants, the Patrick County Chamber of Commerce and Tourism offices, W.H.E.O., the Town of Stuart, One Family Productions, Patrick County elementary schools and the Patrick County Library.
