Christmas Tree Lighting in Cashiers at The Village Green in 2018. Read last year’s article HERE.

  • Christmas On the Green: You may have seen The Village Green in bloom in summer. Have you seen it glow in the winter? Join us for “Christmas On the Green,” one of Cashiers favorite holiday traditions. The 13-plus acre park in the heart of Cashiers will feature thousands of twinkling lights from Thanksgiving weekend until New Year’s Day. This is the sixth year that The Village Green will be making spirits merry and bright. “Christmas On the Green” kicks off the holiday season with an afternoon and evening of festivities Friday, November 29. Santa will visit with children of all ages from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the Gazebo of The Village Green at the crossroads of Highways 64 and 107 in Cashiers. Bring your wishes and a camera for a photo with the jolly couple. The evening continues with holiday music for the Cashiers Christmas Tree Lighting celebration from 5 p.m. until 6 p.m. “Christmas On the Green” will also feature warm drinks and tasty treats, including s-more making around The Village Green fire pit. The magic holiday sparkle happens when the switch is flipped to illuminate the beautiful 60-foot spruce in the center of the village of Cashiers. This year, retailers and businesses in the village core are joining in the festivities and holiday lights display. Stores will stay open late for Christmas shopping and several restaurants will feature live music. Parking is available at the entrance near the Gazebo, off of Highway 64 East, and at the entrance to Village Commons on Frank Allen Road in Cashiers. “The Village Green is distinctive in that it is a free, public park for everyone to enjoy,” said Self. “However, the park receives no public funding and relies on the generosity of individual donors for its operation.” To learn more about The Village Green, including a calendar of events click HERE.
