The MORE the MERRIER
Christmas in Milledgeville
There’s nothing quite like the magic of Christmas in Milledgeville. Immerse yourself in the spirit of the season as you tour our historic homes outfitted in Christmas finery, hop aboard the Polar Express Trolley for a ride to 'believe', or shop our downtown district for a local gift guaranteed to earn a smile.
From the scent of freshly arranged pine décor, to the glow of sparkling lights, to seasonal sips and snacks, Milledgeville’s Christmas season will be a delight for each of your senses. Grab your favorite jacket and scarf and join us for the joy and wonder of the Christmas season!
Take a step back in time and discover holiday traditions passed down from our city's earliest families as Georgia’s Old Governor’s Mansion is transformed with Antebellum era Holiday decor. Breathe in the scent of freshly arranged pine trimmings as you tour the circa 1852 Greek Revival Home, Rose Hill.
Our historic homes are dressed in their holiday style as our town is a classic postcard-worthy location filled with lights, nutcrackers and garland, as well as the best Christmas events to get you in the holiday spirit. Georgia College hosts an annual performance of The Nutcracker, Santa comes to town for the annual Hometown Parade, and a golden ticket will take you on a magical ride on the Polar Express Trolley. Your family will make traditions and memories that will last forever.
