Christmas in the Village


2017 Christmas in the Village

Canal Winchester’s annual storybook Christmas celebration will be held in the city’s historic downtown on Friday, December 1 and Saturday, December 2.

Activities will take place on the sidewalks and streets of downtown Canal Winchester as well as inside several business establishments around the city’s municipal office building at 36 S. High Street.
