What is the festival?

Christmas in Historic Springboro features shopping from local craft and retail vendors, music and entertainment from local organizations. Under heated tents, festival goers will find various children’s crafts and activities. 

For 36 years, Christmas in Springboro is largest three-day holiday festival in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana, attracting over 60,000 visitors annually, encompassing over 7 blocks of South Main Street (Central Ave. to Mill St.).


In 1987, a committee of business owners from the Springboro Historic District met with one mission in mind – to create a family oriented, Christmas experience in Springboro that would include shopping, entertainment, food and fun for all. With that first meeting, Christmas in Historic Springboro was born.

Today’s festival traditions are now carried out by an independent committee who enjoy volunteering their time to plan an event that has become a holiday tradition for many families within Springboro and surrounding areas.

Giving Back to the Community

Christmas in Springboro holds a 501c3 (Springboro Community Foundation Inc.) to be able to assist those in need around the holidays. We partner with Operation SantaSpringboro Community Assistant Center (SCAC) and The Pantry, serving Franklin, Springboro and Carlisle to be able to share the Christmas spirit every year.

These organizations focus on improving the quality of life for parents and children in need. It is important to us, as a committee, to utilize festival funds to help provide hope for families in need, especially during the holiday season.

The funds provide food for those who can’t afford it, financial assistance for those struggling to keep the lights on, and providing Christmas for children whose parents can’t otherwise afford it.
