Watkins Glen village Christmas event returns after pandemic

Watkins Glen Village Christmas, hosted by Watkins Glen Promotions, Inc., will resume again this year on Friday December 10, 2021 from 5p.m.-8p.m. on Franklin Street in Watkins Glen, with the theme of “Candy Land.” This event returns after being cancelled due to the pandemic last year.

The Village Christmas volunteer committee members stated “We are thrilled to be able to host this event again, as it brings so much joy and hope to kick off the holiday season. We look forward to great attendance, happy faces, and continuing the tradition we have had for many years in our village.”




Franklin Street will be closed during the event, and open for vendors and the Village Christmas Parade. The committee is currently seeking vendors and float, fire truck, and tractor applications for the parade. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be at the event as well, however they will not be available for sit-down pictures as has been in the past.
