With the holidays just around the corner, Jonesborough will be kicking off Christmas in Olde Jonesborough with a series of fun activities on Saturdays, beginning Nov. 26, that my family can’t wait for!
Every Saturday will feature a bunch of free activities that truly get me in the holiday spirit. Santa will, of course, be on hand – sitting in his sleigh ready to take photos – and no matter how old my kids get, they can’t wait to see jolly old St. Nick. And it’s not just the little ones – my husband and I love having our picture taken with Santa ever year!
Jonesborough is ready to ring in the holiday season and Tennessee’s oldest town does it up right with the 39th Annual Jonesborough Progressive Dinner, which will take place Saturday, Dec. 3.
Sponsored by the Heritage Alliance of Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia, this is a must-attend event for me. Like many in the region and in surrounding states as well, my husband and I look forward to this every year and always circle the date on the calendar.
Fall is just around the corner and in Jonesborough that means all sorts of amazing things are about to happen. The National Storytelling Festival returns for its 44th edition during the Oct. 7-9 weekend. The world-renowned event gives visitors – about 10,000 of who flock to the event each year - the chance to experience a weekend full of stories and tales from yesteryear.
