Christmas on Walnut Street

Christmas on Walnut Street


Saturday, Dec. 3, 2022 

2:00 - 9:00 p.m.

The Annual Christmas on Walnut Street Festival is held on the first Saturday of December! There are many food and craft vendors, a kids’ zone, and live entertainment.  The afternoon begins with a visit from Santa at his workshop (organized by the GCS Elks Lodge #1892) in the Spring Park pool pavilion where he spends a few hours hearing all the kids' wish lists! The day concludes with a 1-mile Jingle Bell Fun Run organized by the Clay Striders and a beautiful night Christmas Parade organized by the Green Cove Springs Business League, right down Hwy 17! This city-wide Christmas tradition is something you don't want to miss! 

And don't miss Parade of Trees all month long in Spring Park!
