Cornish Christmas in Grass Valley, 2008

Friday, November 14th, 2008

A charming turn-of-the-century setting, the sounds of Cornish Christmas Carolers, Wagon Rides, Jugglers,  Clowns, Cloggers, Christian Rock, Celtic Music, Jazz, Barbershop Quartets, and more highlight this annual Cornish Christmas Celebration in downtown Grass Valley, California. 

Grass Valley’s downtown section (Mill St and Main St) is blocked off to motorized traffic, and you can stroll through the historic gold mining town while taking in the festive atmosphere.  The stores feature illuminated windows and the building silhouettes are picked out with strings of lights.

It also makes an excellent event to pick up unique and/or last minute presents.  Many of the stalls are run by local artisans and if you are lacking ideas for that special someone, then this may be just the place to come for inspiration.

Those feeling a little peckish are also well catered for by the numerous food stalls featuring local fare and snacks.  In addition enjoy hot roasted chestnuts, free courtesy of the Grass Valley Downtown Association.

Cornish Christmas 2008 in Grass Valley is happening on November 28, December 5, 12, & 19 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.  Call: (530) 272-8315 for more details.
