  • | 5:00pm - 9:00pm | Local Events, downtown somerville, somerville holiday jubilee, santa
    - Joy and merriment will fill Downtown Somerville​ when thousands gather for the Holiday Jubilee​ on Saturday, November 25 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Residents and visitors alike will delight in a family-friendly celebration highlighted by the spectacular tree lighting, visit from Santa, festive music and entertainment, and delicious holiday treats. The free event kicks off a magical holiday season brimming with unique shopping and dining experiences in award-winning Downtown Somerville​.

    “The Holiday Jubilee is one of our most popular events of the year and it truly captures what the holiday spirit is all about,” said Beth Anne Macdonald, executive director of the Downtown Somerville Alliance (DSA). “Our entire community comes together—businesses, restaurants, charitable organizations and volunteers—to warmly welcome all those who call Somerville home or their favorite place to visit.”

    The festivities begin at 5 p.m. on the Division Street Plaza as people gather to enjoy music and dancers in anticipation of Santa’s arrival on board Somerville’s vintage fire truck. Santa will light the towering tree, adorned with hundreds of energy efficient LED lights, and the holiday festivities will last all evening long.

    Those searching for the perfect gift will also enjoy the eclectic, one-of-a-kind downtown shopping experience that has come to define Somerville. With more than two dozen store openings in the past five years, Downtown Somerville is the premier place to shop this holiday season. Since the Jubilee coincides with Small Business Saturday, many businesses and restaurants will be offering a variety of exclusive offers and experiences.

    Holiday Jubilee Schedule:
    5:15 p.m. – Music and dancers at Division Street Plaza
    5:45 p.m. – Arrival of Santa for tree lighting and welcome from Somerville Mayor, Brian Gallagher, at Division Street Plaza
    6 p.m. – Horse drawn carriage rides beginning at Division Street Plaza
    6:15 p.m. – Free photos with Santa on the front lawn of the United Reformed Church, 100 West Main Street

    “The Holiday Jubilee is such a special night in Somerville with so much happiness and joy in the air,” said Rev. Paul Janssen, pastor of the United Reformed Church. Located in the heart of Downtown Somerville, the church will host Santa for photos, serve free hot cocoa, and entertain visitors with the joyful sounds of a bell choir comprised of members and friends of the church.

Fun things to do in Piscataway

Since 1986 the Town Planner Calendar has been keeping families across America up-to-date about events and other fun things to do right in their hometown.

Delivered free of charge every December to millions of homes across America, our full-sized, full-color calendar is a time-tested and beloved tool for helping families stay organized. The large date blocks are not only loaded with lots of nearby events and fun things to do, there's plenty of room for you to record your own family's important events like birthdays, anniversaries, parties -- anything you have planned -- so everybody in the house can see them whenever they go to the fridge, out the front door, or wherever you choose to display it.

But there's more! Every calendar is full of coupons from popular local merchants, so you can save money while supporting small businesses right in your hometown.

And don't miss our beautiful full-color photography! Every month you'll recognize a new photo from someplace close to home, submitted to us by a local photographer. If you'd like to have your own hometown photos included in our calendar, please contact your local publisher for more information.

We truly believe it's better to "keep it local". From coast to coast and border to border, our network of franchisees work with organizations and merchants right in their community to make sure you get the information and savings you care about. We prefer to feature family-friendly events that are a short walk or drive away, and coupons from local businesses so you can support your hometown economy.

If there's something happening close to home that folks in your neighborhood need to know about, why not submit it to us today? Please note that publication of your event is subject to approval by your local Town Planner publisher.

If there's no Town Planner calendar in your area, you could be looking at a great business opportunity! Town Planner franchisees set their own hours and can work out of their homes while providing a valuable service to both homeowners and local businesses in the area.
