Welcome the Town of Clayton, North Carolina


Join us THIS Thursday for a Clayton Holiday Tradition!

Thousands of people will pack Main Street this Thursday, Dec. 1 to help bring Downtown Clayton alive with the holiday spirit for the 26th Annual Tree Lighting & Christmas Village!

Starting at 5:30 p.m., enjoy two and a half hours of music, holiday cheer, a business open house, a live Nativity, train rides and — of course — a chance to see Santa, now at Horne Square.  And new this year, make parking easy with shuttles from Clayton High School or the Post Office. The ticket price? Just one non-perishable food item for needy families!

At 7:45 p.m., the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony begins in Town Square. At 8 p.m. sharp, we light the tree!

Free movies, free concerts, a farmer and craft market and so much more is going on in Downtown Clayton. See all our upcoming events here.
