Christmas in Davidson

This past weekend was the first time I’ve attended Christmas in Davidson and I must say I’ll be back year after year. My girlfriend who is one of those Hallmark Christmas fans said that she felt like she was in one of those movies. So, If you’re into that kind of stuff, I suggest you go next year! The event takes place on the nights of Thursday through Saturday from 6pm-9pm. Which is perfect for when you get out of work. I suggest getting there early since the parking fills up quickly, but they do offer a trolley service from remote parking locations!

We ended up parking right by Rumor Mill Market and they were serving hot chocolate and smores. They also had “The Grinch” there to take photos with as well as a performance of “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.”

As we got closer to downtown Davidson, we saw all the tents lit up in the Village Green and could hear music playing. As we walked down the street towards the Town Hall, we passed vendors selling various Christmas gifts on the sidewalk, events going on in all the various businesses, and more.

At the town hall, you can take carriage rides around downtown. I suggest ordering your tickets beforehand because the spots do fill up quick!

As we continued to walk around taking in everything, we came across carolers singing all of the classic Christmas songs.


There was more music at the Davidson Public Library where a concert was going on.

Lastly, we went through the Christmas Tree Village where the trees were decorated by various sponsors. It was $1 a ticket and we got to place our tickets in the stocking of our favorite trees. However many tickets were in each stocking, was how much money the sponsor was given for different causes in the area. There were 60 Christmas trees total!

There was so much to do and see at Christmas in Davidson. It really was something out of a movie! There were people of all ages having a great time and I know I’ll be back for years to come. It’s great to see a town like Davidson put something together that brings in not only their community but surrounding communities as well.
