Yuletide Cheer in the Iron Triangle
Downtown Holiday Festival
is one of Richmond Main Street Initiative’s longest running annual events. Beginning in 2012, Richmond Main Street and East Bay Center for the Performing Arts formed a partnership to bring this special event filled with yuletide cheer to the community. Thanks to the help of countless volunteers, we transform the Center’s beautifully remodeled facility—the historic Winters Building, located at 339 11th Street—into a winter wonderland. We invite families from the Iron Triangle and surrounding communities to participate in a unique holiday celebration complete with festive music, spectacular, seasonal family-friendly performances, tasty snacks, group caroling, the magical illumination of Macdonald Avenue, and a memorable visit from Santa Claus.
