JACKSON — The classic New England Villages of Jackson, Intervale, Glen, Bartlett and Hart's Location invite you to come celebrate the Christmas and Holiday Season with them.

For generations the Jackson area businesses have been perfecting that quintessential New England Christmas and holiday feeling. Cross through our Jackson Historic Covered Bridge and let the enchantment begin.

Friday November 24th is the official start of the Jackson Area Christmas and Holiday Season with businesses offering open houses, holiday drink tastings, storytelling, fondues and more.

On Saturday, Nov, 25th, Santa's first visit will take place at 4:30 p.m. at the Jackson Village gazebo. Be sure to come early so you can see Santa arrive.

Santa will arrive at the gazebo in Jackson Village in a horse-drawn sleigh by way of the 4 p.m. Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour (Anyone interested in riding with Santa can book their Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour Tickets separately).

Santa promises to stay until the last child has had a chance to share their Christmas dreams with him. If there is inclement weather — a sign will be posted on the gazebo and Santa will be visiting at the Whitney’s Community Center.

Then on Sunday, Nov. 26, will be the annual Ole' Fashioned Tree Lighting Ceremony at 4 p.m. with a special invite back to the Christmas Farm Inn & Spa for their annual open house at the barn afterward. The Jackson Grammar School children and the Da Capo Singers be caroling before Santa lights the tree at 4:30 p.m. The first 20 guests will receive a special Christmas hat. 

This spectacular Christmas & Holiday Celebration continues over the next four weekends with craft fairs, wine and holiday drink tastings, cookie decorating, Jingle Bell chocolate tours, breakfast buffets and more.
