Christmas tree

Whether you like ice skating and wine tastings, or a relaxed tree-lighting event with family, you’ll find Christmas activities in Martinsville that are just the right speed. Read on for our favorite events near Martinsville that will set the mood for your celebration.

Hickory Hill Holidays in Martinsville

We love that the Hickory Hill Holidays wine tasting is pretty much the most painless gift-buying experience there is. If you’re interested in the wine-making process, you can get a full tour to see how Smith Mountain Lake’s oldest vineyard has tended the vines and bottled each vintage for 34 years running. If you’re slightly more curious about the tasting, you won’t be disappointed by their 2923 farmhouse tasting room, mulled wine to sip, and gift shop. They’ll even package and gift-wrap those bottles for the wine-lover on your list!

Christmas Tree Lighting in the Gravely-Lester Art Garden

You’ve probably been to a Christmas tree lighting before, but we’re sure you’ve never seen one where the tree is a literal work of art! Created by artist Ian Hogg using lights strung on wire, this beautiful and sculptural tree makes for a uniquely magical Christmas. Enjoy hot cider and a live performance by Martinsville High School Jazz Band, plus ornament-crafting for kids! Santa will make an appearance too, of course.

Holiday on the Ridge

For full Christmas immersion, come to Ridgeway’s Holiday on the Ridge! You’ll find the whole town decked in holiday splendor — from local merchants opening their doors to offer holiday food and music, to churches holding special holiday concerts. The celebration starts on the first Friday of December and last through the weekend, culminating with a holiday parade. Best of all, Santa is always nearby to delight the kids.

Christmas Music by the Still Water Singers

Stop by Martinsville’s Historic Henry County Courthouse on Sunday, December 1 to view their Christmas trees collection, and then stay to hear Christmas traditions by the Still Water Singers. The Singers are an auditioned group of local performers who also work with the Smith River Singers — and if this year’s event is anything like last year, it’s not to be missed! As an added perk, you’ll enjoy refreshments after the concert.

Roanoke Symphony Holiday Pops Spectacular

If you’re in the mood to dress up in your holiday best and go the symphony, make sure you find time for the Holiday Pops Spectacular! Experience the music of the season like you’ve never heard it before — delivered with the full sound and glory of the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra! David Stewart Wiley conducts this year’s Holiday Pops to bring the magic of Christmas alive with excitement and warmth.
