New video: A preview of Cornish Christmas 2013

Attend the 46th annual Cornish Christmas festival in the historic California Gold Rush town of Grass Valley. It is from 6 to 9 p.m. Fridays Nov. 29 through Dec. 20.

Return to a Christmas celebration of more than 200 years ago. Recapture the spirit of Christmas past with vendors dressed in Cornish attire all set in the charming surroundings of the historic downtown.

The shops, restaurants and tasting rooms are open late to help you find the perfect gift on your list, enjoy a variety of culinary delights or sip a glass of local wine at more than five downtown wine tasting rooms.

Mill and West Main Streets are closed to traffic and filled with the sights and sounds of an old fashioned Christmas; hand-crafted vendors. Satisfy your sweet tooth with an old-fashioned treat from one of our food vendors, entertain your family by stopping at one of four stages filled with carolers and musicians.

The Grass Valley Cornish Carol Choir will be appearing nightly on the Union Steps at 6:30 p.m. and again at 7:30 p.m. Many local hotels and B&B’s await.
