The newly revamped Christmas in Sylva celebration begins on Friday, Dec. 1 at 6 p.m. with the official lighting of the Sylva Christmas tree at the fountain on Main Street. This event is provided by the Main Street Sylva Association.
Then, at 6:30 p.m., the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce will host a holiday-themed concert by local rockers Terri Lynn Queen and Scott Baker from 6:30-7:30 p.m., on the front porch of the chamber. There will be free hot chocolate provided, courtesy of Walmart of Sylva.
The fourth annual Holiday Fireworks scheduled to be shot at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 1 have been postponed until 2024 due to drought conditions.
This was intended to be a Christmas gift to the Jackson County community to enjoy while shopping and dining out during the season. The fireworks were to be provided by Andy Shaw Ford, the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce and the Jackson County Parks and Recreation Department. They would have been visible from all over Main and Mill Street in downtown Sylva and immediate surrounding areas. They are shot from directly above The Coffee Shop/Creekside Oyster House area. Please plan to join us for holiday fireworks in 2024.
The annual Sylva Christmas Parade will be at 3 p.m., on Sunday, Dec. 3, courtesy of the Town of Sylva, rain or shine.
