An Old Time Summerville Christmas Celebration


Tuesday, December 1st (5:30pm-8:00pm)

The Town of Summerville
​2020 Old Time Summerville Christmas Celebration
Tuesday, December 1 from 5:30 – 8 p.m.

An Old Time Summerville Christmas Celebration is produced by Summerville Parks and Recreation

This event will be a modified version of the Town’s traditional tree lighting ceremony.  For 2020 we have updated and will follow strict social distancing guidelines set by the South Carolina Department of Commerce. In an effort to provide a safe event that does not promote gathering we will be eliminating the ceremony and countdown of the tree lighting. This year the tree will be lit prior to the event starting. Attendees will be able to stop by anytime during the event to see the lights, enjoy the tree, and take pictures!

The South Carolina Department of Commerce requires attendees over the age of 3 to wear masks at the event and practice social distancing.

Make it a full family event!
Holiday shopping, fantastic dining and seasonal entertainment.
Expanded food truck options on Little Main St. 5:30 – 8 p.m.
