Fayetteville’s Old Time Christmas Celebration

Nestled in the picturesque mountains of West Virginia you can step back in time and enjoy Fayetteville’s Old Time Christmas Celebration. Fayetteville gets all dolled up for the holidays celebrating with true small-town flair. Escape the hustle and bustle of the holidays and enjoy a getaway with your family. You can shop small and enjoy strolling around historic downtown Fayetteville as the storefronts come to life with Christmas displays all month long. The town square will be lit up like a Christmas storybook with lights strung and fresh greenery bringing the town square to life. The Festivities kick off December 1st with Fayetteville’s Annual Christmas Parade. Head over to see the light show at the Fayetteville County Park and participate in the Ugly Sweater Run. Fayetteville’s Christmas Craft Show is held Saturday, December 2nd with over 50 craft vendors. The Grove will be hosting The Fayetteville Arts Coalitions Holiday Sampler during that evening. Experience the town coming together for the Greening of The Town. Make cookies with Santa at The Station, enjoy hot cocoa from Koolbeanz or a Christmas treat from Sweet T’s Candy Land Bakery, lots of activities for the kids, carols, and a town-wide ugly sweater contest.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Historic Fayette Theater Presents: The Best Christmas Pageant Ever November 24, 25, December 1 & 2 at 7:30 pm; November 26 & Dec 3 at 2 p.m. Laughs abound in this bestselling Christmas classic by Barbara Robinson! The Best Christmas Pageant Ever follows the outrageous shenanigans of the Herdman siblings, or “the worst kids in the history of the world.” The siblings take over the annual Christmas pageant in a hilarious yet heartwarming tale involving the Three Wise Men, a ham, scared shepherds, and six rowdy kids. Ralph, Imogene, Leroy, Claude, Ollie, and Gladys Herdman are an awful bunch. They set fire to Fred Shoemaker’s toolshed, blackmailed Wanda Pierce to get her charm bracelet, and smacked Alice Wendelken across the head. And that’s just the start! When the Herdmans show up at church for the free snacks and suddenly take over the Christmas pageant, the other kids are shocked. It’s obvious that they’re up to no good.
