 Join in the Victorian Christmas Celebration activities in Jacksonville, Oregon.

Holiday Festivities continue on weekends up to Christmas

Christmas Tree Lighting, caroling at 5pm. and visits with Father Christmas from 11am-4pm on  Novemer 30th, 2019.

 Experience an old fashioned Holiday Season every Saturday and Sunday  in December when Historic Jacksonville is transformed into a 19th Century village celebrating Christmas in Victorian style.  Enjoy the buildings decorated with greenery and lights. Listen to  and join in with strolling  Carolers. Sip some hot cider from a street side stand. Take a horse drawn wagon ride.

Don’t miss the Victorian Christmas Parade at 10am.

Stop by Dan McGeorge Photo Gallery to visit Father Christmas. Bring your camera to take photos of your kiddos

Take a ride on the Holly Jolly Trolley for just $1 as it makes a short loop around town and lets you off to shop and eat.

Make sure one of your stops is the 1873 Beekman House Museum at 470 E. California. It’s decorated for a Victorian Christmas in the late 1800s. Costumed docents share the origins of holiday traditions during 1- hour tours between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. every weekend. Find the good luck pickle on the Christmas tree; steal a kiss under the mistletoe; and sample one of Mrs. Beekman’s sugar cookies.

You also can step behind the counter of the Beekman Bank Museum, the oldest financial institution in the Pacific Northwest. Peer in drawers, walk in the vault, and interact with docents sharing stories of late 19th Century banking practices, gold shipping, and handshake deals.

And there are special activities and events every day! For a complete list of event, times, and locations visit www.ChristmasinJacksonville.com and www.historicjacksonville.org.
