Light up your Christmas season with Christmas On The Square in Danville

Downtown Danville Partnership and the Town of Danville invite you to kindle your holiday spirit at the 15th annual Christmas On The Square. This community-favorite celebration begins at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, November 26.

Join Santa and Mrs. Claus on the historic Courthouse Square in Danville for a winter wonderland with all the trimmings, including beautifully-decorated shop windows, a trackless train and other activities for kids, a live nativity, and caroling. We will also dedicate our new Christmas tree on the southeast side of the courthouse at 5:00 pm.

The Christmas season officially kicks off as Santa flips a giant switch and lights the sparkling tree and block-wide canopy of lights at 6:00 p.m.

This free, family-friendly evening filled with holiday cheer is the perfect way to usher in your Christmas season. Bring your family or join your friends to find that perfect, local boutique gift, followed by dinner, drinks and dessert at one of the eclectic restaurants on Danville’s square. Cap off your evening by loading your group into your sleigh for a drive through the Winterland light show in Ellis Park.
