Powhatan Christmas Tree

The Powhatan Christmas Parade will be returning for 2021 and will be having its first ever Christmas Tree Lighting! We have donated one of our very own Norway Spruce trees, and he has made himself at home right next to the Powhatan County Courthouse!

The 2021 Powhatan Christmas Parade is a FREE EVENT for the entire family! The festivities will begin at 2:00PM on Saturday Dec. 11, 2021. The route follows along Old Buckingham Rd, from Mann Rd to the Courthouse area. Be sure to stay after the parade for the tree lighting, hot cocoa, Christmas carols from local church choirs, and to meet and take pictures with Santa himself!

We are extremely honored and proud to have our farm fresh spruce not only in the parade, abut for him to grow on the courthouse grounds for generations to come. Welcome home fragrant fella!
