Holiday Events – Downtown Danville

November & December

Come see why Santa and his reindeer take up residence in Danville during the holidays. Family traditions, holiday-themed entertainment and convenient shopping come together each November and December. Make the entire season merry and bright with a cozy carriage ride through downtown, a parade when Santa arrives in town and a visit to Santa’s house.

Holiday shoppers are gifted free parking from Thanksgiving to New Year’s. Late night shopping events and special savings make it easier to enjoy the holidays close to home.  Festive music on Mill Street adds to the holiday spirit.
