Celebrate Christmas Downtown Watch virtually
December 4, 6:30PM
Tune into Murfreesboro CityTV CHannel 3,
Youtube, or live on Facebook.

On the first Friday night of December, holiday revelers usually gather around the courthouse for the annual lighting of the Rutherford County Christmas tree. Main Street organizes this event, which typically features entertainment, caroling, the lighting of the tree and a visit from a very special bearded gentleman. 

This year due to COVID-19, Main Street and the Rutherford County Courthouse will be hosting the event virtually.

Murfreesboro CityTV will be producing a 45 minute pre-recorded Holiday Spectacular Program, showcasing area celebrities, singers, dancers, story tellers, and of course Santa himself will be a part of it.  The pre-recorded program will end in a live tree lighting with Santa and the County Mayor at 7pm.

Make plans with your family and friends to stay warm in your home and watch the program, kicking off your Holiday season!  Tune into Murfreesboro City-TV Channel 3 through Comcast, Roku, Apple TV, Youtube, and Murfreesboro City Facebook.  Rutherford County and Main Street will share the event on their Facebook as well.

A big thank you to our “Celebrate Christmas” sponsors: Middle TN. Electric, Pinnacle Financial Bank, Redstone Federal Credit Union, Geico Insurance, Murfreesboro City Government (in-kind support), and Rutherford County Government (in-kind support).  

Walk around the downtown and view the beautifully decorated windows in our locally owned, small businesses during the Holiday Season.  A window display contest will be taking place for the community to vote starting December 4 and running for two weeks.  Follow Main Street Murfreesboro’s Facebook page to vote on your favorite downtown window display!
