The schedule is coming together!

At the Granville Area Chamber of Commerce, we have been hard at work planning an exciting lineup of events for the 31st Annual Christmas Candlelight Walking Tour.  As soon as the official program is ready, you will be able to download it here.  In the meantime, be sure to mark your calendars for the first ever Village Tree Lighting!  RSVP for the event on Facebook and invite your friends!

Sponsor the 2016 Christmas Candlelight Walking Tour!

The 31st Annual Christmas Candlelight Walking Tour is sponsored by the Granville Area Chamber of Commerce and will take place on Saturday, December 3, 2016 from 1-9pm.

The 31st Annual Christmas Candlelight Walking Tour is sponsored by the Granville Area Chamber of Commerce and will take place on Saturday, December 3, 2016 from 1-9pm.

Believe it or not, but it is already time to start planning for the 31st annual Christmas Candlelight Walking Tour in beautiful downtown Granville.  This year, the CCWT will take place on Saturday, December 3 from 1-9pm.  We are currently securing Corporate Sponsorships and Christmas Tree Sponsorships.  Secure your place in the celebration today - trees are going FAST!

Horse Drawn Wagon Rides at the CCWT!

One of the highlights of the Granville Candlelight Walking Tour are the horse drawn wagon rides throughout the village. Our friends at All Occasions Carriage & Pony Rides, LLC (& Petting Zoo) will be transporting visitors from the pick up spot between St. Luke's and the Granville Historical Society all day. We think Granville may look even more charming than normal as you pass by in the wagon, serenaded by the clip clop of horseshoes!

"Hang Ten Holiday" Train Exhibit is Under Construction!

Our friends at the Granville Public Library are hard at work building the 7th Annual Train Exhibit as part of their "Hang Ten Holiday."  The train exhibit will be open from 1-9pm the day of the Candlelight Walking Tour. FUN FACT: On average, nearly 2500  people pass through the train exhibit on the day of the Walking Tour!

We can't wait to see you on Saturday!

Ride the Trolley!

For the first time in its 30 years, there will be a shuttle service for the Candlelight Walking Tour! 

Ride the trolley from two designated lots on Weaver Drive into downtown Granville! You can board from either the Licking Memorial Family Health Practice lot or the Dixon, Davis, Bagent & Co lot. The trolley will drop you off near the corner of N Main and Broadway. There is no set schedule for the trolley; it will just run on a continuous loop. Our goal is that this allows more people to make it in to downtown to enjoy the Tour.  We can't wait to see you in Granville on Saturday!
