Middleburg, Virginia is a wonderful place to celebrate the Christmas holiday. Located in the heart of Virginia horse country, the small town attracts local residents and visitors from around the region to take part in traditional festivities that have become an essential part of the spirit of Christmas in Middleburg.

Each December, the Middleburg Hunt takes to the streets creating a spectacular site as approximately 100 horses, riders in red coats and dozens of hounds come through the town. The Middleburg Christmas Parade features a unique assortment of floats, marching bands, local community groups, antique fire trucks, and a variety of animals including horses, llamas and dogs. Santa brings up the rear riding on a beautiful horse drawn coach. Throughout the day there are hayrides, choir performances, the Garden Club's Christmas Flower & Greens Show and the Craft Show. A Wine Crawl at the end of the day allows adults to wind down and relax while sampling wines from area vineyards, and foods in local restaurants.
