The Germantown Christmas Festival kicks-off the Holiday Season in Germantown. There are family friendly activities scheduled all day so bring your family, friends and neighbors out to enjoy the community before the busyness of the season takes over.
The Germantown Chamber needs the support of community businesses, organizations and residents to be able to pull together these activities for the entire Village of Germantown, our neighbors and visitors. There are many ways to be involved and/or sponsor with many options for every budget. Christmas Festival Sponsorships
