The Village Green to spread holiday cheer Thanksgiving weekend

The Village Green will add some sparkle to your holidays on Friday, November 27 and Saturday, November 28 with the 10th annual “Christmas On the Green” celebration.

“After a day of feasting, make your spirits merry and bright with a visit to The Village Green,” said Executive Director Ann Self.

Cashiers Mistletoe Market

New this year is the Cashiers Mistletoe Market, an event featuring 12 artisan vendors with a unique assortment of handcrafted Christmas gifts, food, and decorations.

The market will be from 2-5 p.m. Friday, November 27 and Saturday, November 28 at The Village Green Commons on Frank Allen Road next to the Cashiers post office.

Among the many great gift finds at the market, you can purchase the first commemorative Village Green Christmas Tree ornament.

Santa Clause

Come share your Christmas wishes with Santa from 2-5 p.m. on Friday, November 27 in the new Commons Hall. The jolly fellow will visit with children of all ages, but the number of visitors will be limited to ensure a safe and excellent event for everyone. 

For this reason, visits will be by ticketed appointment only. For more information and to purchase ticketed appointments click HERE.

Christmas Tree Lighting

The festivities also include the annual Cashiers Christmas Tree lighting ceremony 5:30-6:30 p.m. Friday, November 27 at the Gazebo near the Cashiers Crossroads. The evening features holiday music, but the highlight of the day will be when the switch is turned on to illuminate the 65-foot spruce in the center of Cashiers followed by thousands of twinkling lights throughout the village core. 

This year the Cashiers Christmas Tree Lighting and Village Lights celebration is a collaboration between the Cashiers Area Chamber of Commerce and The Village Green. Visitors need to wear a mask and safely distance from others. The tree lighting can also be viewed from locations in the village core.

Please note that plans are subject to change and health and safety measures will be implemented per the current circumstances with COVID-19.

The Village Green is a 13 acre privately conserved park for free public enjoyment. The Village Green depends on the financial support of individuals to help fund all of the fun and interesting activities as well as maintain the park for everyone to enjoy. Please consider a generous year end, tax-deductible gift to The Village Green. 

Donations can be made online HERE or mailed to P.O. Box 2201, Cashiers, NC 28717.
