2017 Event Calendar


31st Annual Downtown South Boston
Christmas Open House

Sunday, November 19th, 2017  |  1 - 5 pm

It’s the Christmas Holiday Season and Downtown South Boston will be decked out. The twinkling lights, decorations and music piped onto the street invite you to stroll downtown and slip back in time to Christmas Past, when thoughts of peace and goodwill toward our fellowman and sugarplums filled our hearts and made us happy! 

Thus the stage is set for “A Holiday Tradition in Downtown South Boston” – the 31st Annual Christmas Open House on Sunday, November 19th from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.

The Downtown Stores will open their doors for their customers’ holiday shopping pleasure from 1 – 5 p.m.  You can enter to win a $100 downtown gift certificate. All the merchants welcome visitors during this special holiday event and thank you for shopping local & supporting our community’s economy.

Don’t forget to also get your picture taken with Santa at Moving Voices The Isadora Duncan Cultural Exchange, 419A Main Street, between the hours of 1 – 4:00 p.m.

C Action Photography by David Conner II will be printing 4x6 Santa pictures onsite for $5.00, 5x7’s for $8, and 8x10’s for $15. Various backgrounds are available and as always, feel free to bring your own camera and visit with Santa.
