Several musical groups will perform including local duo Alathea, Studio Dance, the Appalachian Irish Dance Company, Jonesborough Golden Heirs Choir, Jonesborough Senior Center, Johnson City Senior Chorale and area children’s choirs. There will also be additional songs and even some celebrity guests, including Santa Claus and Rudolph. The concert is directed by Cherry Smith.
The main concert begins at 7 p.m., and will last an hour. The concert is free, but donations are encouraged. All donations go to the educational programs and exhibits at the Chuckey Depot Museum.
The museum is located on Second Avenue in a historic Southern Railroad depot that was moved from Chuckey, TN, to save it from demolition. Today, the museum shares the history of the Chuckey community as well as the history of the Railroad in the region. The museum is free of charge so all donations help with changing exhibits and programming.
Concessions will be provided by Paws in Blue.
The Chuckey Depot Museum hours are Thursday, Friday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information on the exhibit or the Chuckey Depot Museum, visit Jonesborough.com, follow the Chuckey Depot on Facebook, or call the Jonesborough Visitors Center at 423.753.1010.
