How to Have the Most Memorable Christmas in North Georgia 

Attend a Christmas Parade 

You’ll find that North Georgia has the best small town celebrations to get into the holiday spirit! Early each December, our town heralds the beginning of the Christmas season with a fantastic Christmas parade in downtown Clarkesville, Georgia. The annual festivities include crafts, food, games, and visits with Santa Claus. 

Experience a Downtown Clarkesville Christmas 

Another way to ensure you’re experiencing the best North Georgia Christmas possible is to venture to downtown Clarkesville! A Downtown Clarkesville Christmas is a celebration of all things merry and bright. It promises to be a memorable experience for you and yours; our quaint and charming town comes to life as it’s decked out in Christmas trees and twinkling lights! Aside from the iconic Tree Lighting Ceremony, visitors enjoy complimentary hot cocoa, a visit with Santa at the downtown Clarkesville gazebo, an Elf on the Shelf hunt, and extended shopping hours. 

Warm Up with a Wine Tasting (or Two) 

There’s no better way to warm up on a chilly day than participating in a wine tasting! There are countless North Georgia vineyards to visit, and each offers a unique take on the region’s locally harvested varietals. Venture into Yonah Mountain Vineyards for an incredible view of sprawling vineyard hills and Mount Yonah looming in the distance. Serenity Cellars is just five minutes away from Yonah Mountain Vineyards, so you can pair the two for a truly incredible double wine tasting! Both of these wineries offer special events and live entertainment, so be sure to check their calendars before arriving.
