This year, the Tazewell Christmas Parade will be held on Saturday December 2nd at 3:00pm with parade line-up beginning at 2:00pm. The Tree Lighting Ceremony will also be conducted on Saturday, December 2, at 2:00pm prior to the parade starting. Start making your plans, and encourage your church, families, friends, businesses and community groups to join in the festivities and to bring the 2017 Tazewell Christmas Parade “Christmas on the Farm” to life. This year, the parade will be led by Tazewell County Farm Bureau Association as they celebrate their 100th birthday.

The Tazewell Christmas parade is more than a lineup and walk down Main Street. It involves team building, giving spirits, and vision to turn something ordinary into a remarkably creative event that celebrates the true meaning of Christmas. We welcome veteran parade members as well as first-timers and look forward to the creations your church, business, school, club, team, or organization come up with.

The Town of Tazewell Christmas Parade Committee extends a heartfelt thank you for the community support that made last year’s Christmas Parade a fun-filled and exciting event. The number of marching bands increased, the entries were diverse and festively decorated, and the weather cooperated. It took a great deal of participant support to make this happen, and all who did so deserve recognition.

This year, parking will be available along the bank/post office side of Main Street to allow for patron-friendly viewing to the tree lighting and parade.

We want to grow this special event to be even bigger and better than last year so please, register your group now. Registration deadline is Friday, Nov. 24th. There is no cost to enter and ribbons will be given in each category.

Tazewell is truly a wonderful and unique place to live with a loving and supportive community. We hope to see you either as a member of the parade, or a patron, on Saturday, December 2!
