32nd Annual Christmas in July West Jefferson, NC

32nd Annual Christmas in July

The 32nd Annual Christmas in July Festival, West Jefferson – July 7 2018 takes place in the quaint town of West Jefferson, North Carolina. The festival began as a way to promote the local Christmas Tree Industry, and boy has it worked! Ashe County (home of West Jefferson) was named the largest producer of Christmas trees in the nation! The 32nd Annual Christmas in July Festival features many Christmas crafts, a tree baling competition…and a chance to visit with Santa Claus. Some people say it is never too early to start your Christmas shopping. This festival truly has something for everyone. You can do a little early Christmas shopping, listen to some great local mountain music and watch traditonal dance such as flat footing and clogging, eat festival food (including the BEST homemade ice cream!) or grab something fresh from the farmers market (get the green beans!). There is plenty to entertain kids, including street performers with magic tricks, bubbles and music, a giant puppet parade and children’s activities.
