December 2 @ 6:30 pm - December 3 @ 5:00 pm

Virden Country Christmas

The VACC will be hosting the annual “Country Christmas” on December 2nd & 3rd, 2022.

Plans for the 2022 Virden Country Christmas include the annual Candy Land Lighted Christmas Parade Click here for information and how to enter a float in the parade!

The Hall of Trees will focus on Christmas wreaths and centerpieces. Wreaths will be provided by the VACC. All you need to do is reserve one to decorate any way you wish!  Holiday centerpieces are left to your choice of style, design, and imagination. The VACC has also invited local churches and service organizations to create a “CANstruction Tree” which is a Christmas tree made from canned goods. The food collected from the trees will be given to the Virden Food Pantry.

Breakfast with Santa will be held on Saturday morning from 9–11 AM at the Virden Fire House. Pancakes and sausage will be served for a donation (Gluten free option available). Kids can visit with Santa, and with Miss Virden, or explore the fire truck! Don’t forget to sign up for one of the giant stockings filled with goodies!

There’s plenty for kids to do, hidden rocks at each venue location on both Friday and Saturday! You can re-hide them or keep them for your very own.  Polar Express Train rides, a Christmas Storytime just before the parade at 6:30 pm at the Sly Fox Bookstore, and even hot chocolate served at Virden Hardware and inside the Community Center.
