A Main Street Christmas

A Main Street Christmas has been cancelled for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We look forward to the time when we can be together again.

This holiday season we are hosting several other events with CDC guidelines in place.  Please check the Homepage for these events.

A Main Street Christmas - 2019

This year, Mount Airy's Main Street Christmas will be on December 7, 2019 starting at 5:30 PM.

Rain Date December 14th at 5:30 PM.

Come visit our CHARMING town where true holiday SPIRIT is about bringing the community together, to share some memories, and make new ones. 

The old-fashioned Main Street Christmas celebration is a growing favorite, attracting families from Mount Airy, as well as visitors from surrounding counties, Baltimore City, and Washington, DC.

Downtown Mount Airy has seven restaurant/cafes and over 18 retail businesses, to keep you busy. Between all the shops, you are bound to find something for everyone on your gift list. Please consider Mount Airy next time you need to find that special gift for someone. Main Street will be closed to traffic during this event so you can feel free to walk safely down Main Street!
