This event has been created with social distancing, crowd control and COVID19 guidelines in mind. We are limiting our capacity to only allow a handful of people at a time over many days.
Your well-being and your safety are our number ONE priority.
And remember, proceeds of this event benefit St. Josephs Villa!



If this is your first visit or your family tradition, we welcome you!   Christmas at Granny’s is a craft show and holiday experience that was started in 1980 and has become a seasonal must!    

COIVD 19 precautions:

We are taking precautions in order to comply with Phase 3 State of Virginia requirements. Many events have been cancelled this year, and we want to be sure that Christmas at Granny’s goes ahead as planned.

In order to limit the number of visitors to allow for adequate social distancing and avoid unnecessary crowding we have introduced a ticketing system, with timed intervals. We have added more days to the schedule in order to spread out our visitors across the week.

Please attend the event at the time you have selected on your ticket. Please click here to order a ticket for a date and time that suits you.

Our venue is continually cleaned and sanitized, all our cashiers will be wearing masks and gloves, and we ask that if possible you avoid paying cash for your purchases.

Please bring a mask, you will be asked to wear it while indoors.

Hand sanitizer will be placed on site, but we advise you to bring your own small bottle as well.
Food will be available for purchase from food trucks that are following all mandated precautions.

What is the entry fee for the public?

Christmas at Granny’s 2021 is a ticketed event. Please click here to select the day and time that best suits your schedule. Tickets are $5 each, a portion of this will go to support the work of Northstar Academy.
