Join us as we celebrate Christmas in Caswell with our annual themed parade and Maker’s Market. This year, the parade will begin at 3 p.m. on Saturday, December 2nd. It will take its usual route from Bartlett Yancey High School, down Main Street, and end at the Food Lion parking lot.
The parade will be immediately followed by the Maker’s Market. Be sure to come out and see what your friends and neighbors across the community have been working on. This is a wonderful opportunity to support our local crafters, makers, and vendors while checking some things off your Christmas gift list! To participate in the Maker’s Market, please reach out to Caswell Arts at caswellarts.org. The Market will also have food trucks and live music provided by The Shag Doctorz. Be sure to bring a lawn chair if you’d like to hear them perform, they’ll be live on the Pavillion stage from 4pm to 6pm.
Finish off the night of fun with the annual Tree Lighting at 6 pm. Every year, the community gathers around the large tree set in the lawn next to the Richmond-Miles History Museum and watches it come to life with the light of the holiday season. Before you leave, be sure to explore the many opportunities and activities of the night; including a photo with Santa! We can’t wait to see you all there!
