Join us in Gallatin this Holiday Season!

We believe that Gallatin is most magical during the holiday season, much due to the iconic holiday happenings - from special events that the community enjoys together to traditions that have been passed down for many generations to historic treasures that come fully alive for festivities. The spirit of Christmas is alive and well in Gallatin, Tennessee and we're proud to showcase it all through Magic on Main!

Kicking off the second weekend in November with Gallatin's shop-local 52 year tradition, Tinsel and Treasures, and going all the way until the clock strikes 12 on Christmas Eve with beautiful candlelight services, Gallatin is packed full of fun and holiday excitement for just about everyone. Make plans to draft your holiday event list - and be sure to check it twice - as you find events here that are both merry and nice!
