Live Oak

Christmas on the Square

Christmas on the Square is one of the largest Christmas festivals in North Florida with over 300 arts & craft vendors, food vendors, car show, agriculture exhibit, and entertainment.

The festivities begin on Thursday night with The Jingle Bell Fun Run/Walk through downtown Live Oak ending at Millennium Park in time for the Christmas Tree Lighting and Santa’s arrival. There will also be popcorn and hot chocolate and a movie for the kids.

On Friday in downtown Live Oak we will host an evening filled with arts and craft vendors, live music, food vendors, dancing, bounce houses and there is also a 100% chance of snow! The grand finale is a professional fireworks show.

Early Saturday morning downtown Live Oak is filled with arts and crafts vendors, dozens of different food vendors, a car show, an agriculture exhibit and live entertainment at Millennium Park. We host over 250 vendors offering arts and crafts, handcrafted woodworks, quilts, furniture and much more. As visitors progress through the arts and crafts booths, they can’t resist the smell of the delicious and diverse foods in the food court. You can enjoy many different types of meals and tasty snacks.

Once the sun goes down and the vendors pack up their booths, the day isn’t over yet. The stars of this show are just making their way down Ohio Avenue to shine in the Annual Christmas Parade of lights. Numerous floats are entered every year to compete for many titles in the parade competition. Young and old alike delight in the spectacular and dazzling displays of lighted mobile creativity.

So, mark your calendar now and be a part of the Christmas on the Square weekend. Begin preparing your heart for the holiday spirit!​
