Colors of Christmas: Historic Tour and Dinner

December 1, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

From the magic of the Nighttime Lighted Christmas parade, to breakfast with Santa in the Chuckey Depot Museum, and even the Children’s Event, Fun with Frosty & Friends, the storybook town of Jonesborough will be sparkling with Christmas splendor. But the ultimate way to kick off the Holiday season is with the Colors of Christmas Historic Tour and Dinner on Saturday December 1st.

This is an opportunity to explore the historic homes and structures of Tennessee’s Oldest Town. A tradition with this event is that the tour locations are not released in advance. Creating quite the anticipation the day of, visitors line-up awaiting to discover what homes and historic buildings will soon be toured.

Even though the tour locations for this year have not been released, here are a few examples and stories of locations on the tour in the past. One home on the tour was an 1880s Gothic Revival, another was a rustic cottage on Main Street filled with character. There have even been homes on the tour that tell of stories of restorations just before the point of demolition by neglect. Other homes on the tour once belonged to the most distinguished leaders of the past. Public structures on the tour sometimes offer insider information you couldn’t get any other way. Each location will be beautifully decorated and is sure to put you in the holiday spirit.

The tour isn’t a delight simply for the visitors who partake in the event, but the homeowners that place their residence on the tour as well. “My home is a gift and I want to share that with others,” one homeowner explained. “It’s an honor to live in this wonderful Town.” The locals of Jonesborough take this as an opportunity to share stories of the past.

In addition to the historic structures open for tours, there will also be live music in one location and shuttles continually running the tour route. After you explore the private homes and historic buildings, cap off the evening with an elegant, multi-course meal and live music.

Embark on a journey through Tennessee’s Oldest Town during the Colors of Christmas, it’s sure to make you feel right at home for the Holidays. The tour and dinner take place on Saturday December 1st. The tour is from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. and the dinner is at 4:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. To purchase tickets call 423.753.1010 or visit jbochristmas.com/tickets.
