We are kicking off a new annual Christmas event! “Tinsel and Tidings” is a community-wide event to be held in Cherokee, which supports small business, the arts and non-profits. This event takes existing events like the Wonderful World of Christmas Lighted Parade, Sanford Museum’s Festival of Trees and the Cherokee Area Farmer’s Market and combines them with a weekend of shopping, artisans, contests with great prizes, live music and theater and other terrific events and displays!

New events will include “Light Up the Town”, a city-wide lighting contest for residents and "Deck the Walls" business decorating contest, a Living Windows Display on Main St, 2nd Annual Artist’s Open House, a Christmas Cookie Baking Contest, and Breakfast with Santa. Many of these events will also benefit our local arts and non-profit organizations. Additionally there will be live theater and music throughout the weekend and new events are still being added!



  • Starting Thursday, December 6th, 2018, repeated every day until Sunday, December 09, 2018 — all day
