Jonesborough: Celebration of Trees

December 5 - December 26

Twinkling lights, the scent of Fraser firs, handcrafted ornaments and Christmas decorations are filling the shops and store fronts of downtown Jonesborough. The annual Celebration of Trees, a unique exhibit of beautifully decorated Christmas trees, will be held in Historic Jonesborough on December 5 through December 26.

This year’s exhibit begins at the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center, located at 117 Boone Street, where seven beautifully decorated live trees will be on display within the Old Town Emporium Gift Shop. These trees are all sponsored and decorated by area businesses and non-profit organizations. Participants can pick up a program which features a listing of locations throughout the historic district where they can view over 30 decorated trees.

The celebration of trees has been a Jonesborough tradition for over 30 years. Growing over the years, it is now become an event that stretches from the Jonesborough Visitors Center to the Jonesborough Senior Center to the Chuckey Depot Museum on 2nd Ave. The exhibit features many spots in between as well including Boone Street Market, Gabriel’s Christmas, Mill Spring Park Gazebo, McKinney Center and many others.

The exhibit is free and open to the public Monday, December 5 through Monday, December 26. Exhibit programs are located at the Jonesborough Visitors Center and the International Storytelling Center. This year the program will double as a ballot where attendees can vote for the “People’s Choice Award” for the best decorated tree in town. All locations are open to public viewing during their normal operating hours.

For additional information on the Celebration of Trees, contact the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center at 423.753.1010.
