Doggone Christmas

Christmas is Going to the Dogs!

Christmas in Olde Jonesborough continues on Saturday, December 3 with Doggone Christmas from 11 am to 3 pm.
Bring your furry friends for pictures with Santa, a treat station, and shop at the Christmas Market for pet-friendly items and Christmas gifts for everyone! While you’re here, explore downtown Jonesborough and support local businesses.
Bring donations in front of the courthouse for the Appalachian Highlands Humane Society, formerly the Humane Society of Washington County, and help a pet in need this holiday season!


11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Dog Treat Stops 

During Doggone Christmas visit each of these stops so your furry friend can get a treat! Some locations will have the treats outside as they can’t have pets inside restaurants.
