Christmas on the River


Since its debut in 1972, Demopolis, Alabama's Christmas on the River has grown into one of the Southeast's leading attractions.  People travel from coast to coast to see the floats that really float.  Each year, events have been added until Christmas on the River has developed into a week long festival. 

The weeklong celebration will begin with the lighting of the love trees.  As in years past, we will devote one evening to the live nativity scene, the candlelight tours of our antebellum homes, and the Alabama State Championship BBQ Cook-off.  The week will end on the first Saturday in December with “Fair in the Square” (an arts and crafts show), a children's day parade, and our spectacular nautical parade and fireworks extravaganza.

This festival has been featured on HGTV, The Food Network, and it made Demopolis the #5 Ultimate Holiday Town in the USA according to A&E TV! For more information contact the Demopolis Area Chamber of Commerce at 334-289-0270
