Get your holiday fix with baked goods, jams & jellies, crafts, homemade soaps, knife sharpening, fresh flower arrangements, jewelry, and more! Then to finish off the evening, Mountain Valley Brewing will host music this evening. Join them in the Brewery Barn for a great night with Ray Eanes LIVE the and the best craft beer in Henry County.

Sunday, December 15th, you’ll wind down the weekend with the Christmas Parade in Uptown Martinsville. 2019's parade theme is "The Magic of Christmas." Many spectators start their holiday season each year to the sounds of prancing ponies, motors rumbling and cool breezes blowing the tinsel on festive floats. We invite you to come early to do some shopping, grab dinner, and find your perfect spot on the parade route!
