The information below was shared with News of Davidson by the Rotary Club of Davidson.  Please assist us by reaching out to business owners and non-profit contacts you know and encourage them to participate this year.

DEADLINE – November 1st!!!

Christmas in Davidson is a time-honored tradition in Lake Norman and provides an opportunity for you to advertise your business while giving back. 

Historically Christmas in Davidson welcomes over 25,000 patrons annually.

Last year our Village was viewed by thousands of patrons & we sold 15,995 tickets for votes which helped raise $30,000 for 60 charities.  

Of course, this is the year of the coronavirus, so just like everything else this event will be different. The Town of Davidson will still have strolling carolers, Santa driving through town and Davidson businesses will be festive for the Town’s 12 Days of Christmas theme. There won’t be any vendor tents, or carriage rides, and the street won’t be blocked off. However, the Giving Tree Village will light up the entire Davidson Town Green from December 1st – 12th continuing our fundraising tradition for non-profits during this most difficult of years! 


This year’s Giving Tree Village is expected to be spread out across the Village Green. Sign up to sponsor a tree now.

Benefit Level – $250
