All year round, Middleburg’s beautiful 18th century village is unique - a hunt country capital, anchor of Virginia’s premier wine region, retail haven for antiques, fashion, center of fine dining, and lodging – all of which make it a memorable travel destination.
On the first Saturday of December the community becomes a Christmas experience like no other … Christmas in Middleburg.
The wonder begins with lighting of the Christmas tree and caroling at 5:00pm on Friday evening before the parade day. Join us for this quiet, moving ceremony of lights and song to get your spirit in the mood for Christmas.
Saturday is a full day of family festival activities, making it one more marvelous way that this community comes together, celebrates a spiritually moving holy season, and individuates itself eccentrically and endearingly in doing so.
Saturday’s Breakfast with Santa at 8:00am is followed by our iconic Middleburg Hunt Review at 11am with riders on horseback and the pack of hounds coming down the main street.
After lunch, the hour-long Christmas Parade begins at 2pm, featuring foot beagle hunt clubs, polo clubs, animal affinity groups (corgi owners, Great Pyrenees owners, llama and alpaca owners, etc.), community groups (VFDs, schools, scouts, churches, clubs), enthusiasts groups (MG cars, old fire trucks, Mini Coopers, muscle cars), business floats, reenactment bands (Civil War, Revolutionary War, Scots highlands), high school bands, and quite a few miscellany that escape description, with Santa on his coach drawn by matched Ayrshires closing the parade.
All day long there are special events including:
In the past, 10,000+ visitors attended the many activities and events, lining our closed streets in pleasant pedestrian anarchy. They come from throughout our local area and from the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area for some fantastic “Holiday Seasoning” in the countryside.
Middleburg is only 45 minutes from Washington D.C. and close to the Dulles International Airport. To get there take I-66 West to Route 50 West (toward Winchester) via Exit 57B. From there, Middleburg is just a 25-minute drive.
