Christmas Village: Gifts, Charity and Holiday Cheer!

The Christmas Village is a weekend event that features several hundred booths of artisans and merchants from all over. According to the website, “a variety of unique seasonal and gift items are offered, including: toys for all ages, clothing for children and adults, jewelry, food items, pottery, collectibles and unusual pieces for the ‘person who has everything’.” 

General admission is $10 (children 9 and under free), and tickets may be used any one day out of the Friday-Sunday weekend.

It’s one of the oldest charitable events in Nashville (52 years!) In the debut year of 1961, they raised $1000 dollars. Last year, with the help of over 200 volunteers, $8.5 million in donations went to charities all over the city.

The Nashville Pi Beta Phi Alumni Club arranges this wonderful event, and this year all proceeds benefit the Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center and the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts

So from November 15-17 at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds, check out the historic (and for a good cause!) Christmas Village. And if you can’t attend but would like to donate anyway, click here.
