SPONSORSHIP PACKET FOR THE 2023 CORNISH CHRISTMAS EVENT WILL BE ADDED SOON!
As we continue on with our timeless tradition and this year celebrating our 55th Anniversary of Cornish Christmas, some details will remain the same.
Cornish Christmas invites you to “Mill” around downtown, stroll with your favorite hot beverage from the GVDA and Chamber Holiday Beverage Booths, and visit a Winter Festival of Cornish Christmas favorites you know and love. Shop our Downtown Mill Street Plaza and Main Street with extended Holiday Hours.
Downtown Grass Valley will be filled with the sights and sounds of an old-fashioned Christmas; carolers, musicians, and a fire pit to roast chestnuts and warm your hands. Look for Santa and Mrs. Claus, the Tree Lady, and other holiday characters. The event hosts craft and food vendors, and the town shops, restaurants, wine-tasting rooms, tap houses, and bars are open. The streets will be awash in festive holiday décor, lights, and sparkling windows.
Bring your camera to take photos with Santa; he’ll be waiting for everyone.
In addition to extended holiday shopping hours on certain days, the Grass Valley Downtown Association (GVDA) and the GV Chamber will have holiday drink booths located on Mill Street and at the Clocktower at Mill and Main. Enjoy favorite hot chocolate, hot apple cider, and other beverages. Sip, Stoll, and Shop downtown to find your holiday treats.
Pause at the steps of the historic Union Building as the Cornish Carol Choir performs traditional homeland Christmas carols. Enjoy the wide selection of holiday music amongst the trappings of a historic gold rush town.
