A Gettysburg Christmas Festival is hosted by Main Street Gettysburg in partnership with community organizations and sponsors.

Among the activities are live performances, kids activities, holiday markets, tours, carriage rides, open houses, scavenger hunts and appearances by Santa himself.

The Gettysburg Christmas Festival largely takes place in Downtown Gettysburg and out Steinwehr Avenue, however, many events are located throughout the Gettysburg countryside. A map and full event schedule can be found by clicking the “website” link above.

This year’s festival is unique as we will be screening the movie “A Gettysburg Christmas,” an independent production filmed in Gettysburg and Adams County in 2023 by Director Bo Brinkman. Tickets for these performances has sold out.

The festival represents true community collaboration through cooperation, partnerships, and volunteers to showcase Gettysburg during the holiday season.
