Every December, Downtown Ashland transforms into a vintage Christmas village with “Light Up the Tracks” — a mile-long light display combined with three weeks of special events designed to welcome visitors for a unique small town holiday experience.
With the help of Dominion Energy as sponsor, block after block of Downtown Ashland businesses and homes are decorated and illuminated. Join us for holiday sights, sounds, festive Christmas decorations, live music, photo stations, appearances by Santa, and more.
Shoppers wanting to experience the charm of Ashland’s main street will find high-quality local gifts and decorations at many of the local shops. Visitors are also invited to warm up with a glass of wine or hot chocolate and enjoy Downtown Ashland’s many restaurants.
Creating this unique holiday experience requires the efforts of Downtown Ashland Association, sponsor Dominion Energy, the Town of Ashland, Randolph-Macon College, residents and business owners.
