On the first two Saturdays in December, the historic settlement of Rugby, Tennessee, will come alive with Christmas spirit and celebrate the holidays as if it were still 1880, the year the town was settled.

The living Victorian-era village will bustle with caroling, holiday shopping and much more. Highlights of the Victorian Christmas celebration include holiday music, hot drinks and cookies in the decorated historic buildings, a visit from Father Christmas and the sounds of carolers performing throughout the village. TICKET information and a purchase link will be posted soon on this site. Questions? Please call 423-728-2441 Ext. 1 Wednesdays through Sundays.

A Christmas Dinner at extra charge will possibly be offered.  If so, a link for purchase will be posted here soon.

In addition, if last year’s schedule is repeated, Christ Church Episcopal will present a seasonal worship service of Lessons & Carols with an emphasis on music both Saturdays at both 4 & 4:45 p.m. EST (3/3:45 Central) in the 1887 church. We’ll update here if anything changes.

Festivities run from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. Eastern.

For any questions, please call 423-628-2441 Ext. 1 Wed.-Sun.
