Country Christmas Events
Country Christmas is how the Mad River Valley celebrates the holidays. The Mad River Valley Chamber works in collaboration with the business community to spread holiday cheer and to promote our local businesses throughout the holidays season. It’s certainly going to be different this year, but rest assured the MRV will do its darnedest to keep the holiday spirit alive.
With social distancing in mind our business community is coming together to light up our community for the holidays, encourage buying local and spreading out the traffic by encouraging early shopping, embracing innovation and ensuring that visitors and locals are aware of all the happening occurring in every MRV “neighborhood”.
From Thanksgiving through New Years, visitors and locals alike will notice experiences, activities and sales in every “neighborhood” in the Mad River Valley; Warren Village, Mad River Green, Village Square, Middlesex/Camp Meade and the mountains. Here’s a sampling of what you can expect;
