Be a part of the memories for the Roanoke Valley's premiere holiday celebration, The Roanoke Times Dickens of a Christmas! Celebrating its 35th anniversary, Dickens occurs on the first three Fridays in December. We're looking for volunteers to help us out on the 3 nights of Dickens. Sign up here!
This year's schedule is:
****This year's City of Roanoke Christmas Parade will be held on Saturday, December 9 at 6:00pm. This is a one-year-only change due to Franklin Rd Bridge construction and detour route along Jefferson St. If you're interested in applying to participate in this year's parade, please complete and return the Parade Application.
This free, family-friendly event happens annually in Downtown Roanoke and includes favorites like roasted chestnuts, carriage rides, street performers, and more! Full schedule and details coming soon!
