On the first Friday night of December, holiday revelers gather around the historic 1859 Rutherford County Court House, for the annual lighting of the Rutherford County Christmas tree. Main Street organizes this event, featuring entertainment, caroling, the lighting of the tree, and a visit from a very special bearded gentleman. Bring your family downtown for dinner, view the live nativity, shop in unique stores, enjoy an hour-long program full of choir music, dancing, acting, and Santa. Free activities for children, carriage rides, and pictures with Santa run from 5:30-8:30pm. It's a Christmas tradition for Murfreesboro and we hope you and your family will be a part of it downtown!
Inaugural Boro Festival of Wreaths
You can participate by decorating and donating a wreath to be auctioned off by Main Street Murfreesboro. Choose a theme for your wreath (sports, holidays, school spirit, etc.) and decorate it with items, keeping track of the value of your wreath. Main Street will display all wreaths downtown from November 22-December 3. A QR code will be on display with instructions for bidding through the online auction November 25- and will close December 1st at the "Tree Lighting" event downtown. Everyone who donates a wreath is allowed to nominate a nonprofit organization in Rutherford County. Money collected from the wreaths will be split between the nominated nonprofit organizations.
