More Information

Make memories with your family this Christmas in downtown Buchanan, VA during our Drive Thru, Backwards Christmas Parade.

Come in the afternoon to rediscover Christmas in small town America. Stroll along Buchanan's historic Main Street where you can explore buildings dating from the early 1800's through the 1950's filled with art, antiques, furniture, carpets, textiles, primitives and more. After shopping, enjoy dining in a locally owned restaurant, or, grab dinner to go, then, something different happens. 

At 6:00p.m. participants for the parade will begin setting up their floats along the side of the street in parallel parking spaces, then, at 7:00 p.m. the public will begin driving along Main Street viewing from the comfort of their cars the parade as they make their way along Main Street. Following the Parade, why not take the family to enjoy the Festival of Lights Drive Thru Display on the Buchanan Town Park.

Just a reminder, this is not your usual parade, visitors are encouraged to come early and shop and dine, then, get back in to your car to drive thru our COVID Safe, Backwards Christmas Parade. For additional information, call 540-254-1212.
