A special visitor from the North Pole is expected to delight guests and spread Christmas cheer.

We plan to transform the Williamsburg Inn into a winter wonderland – full of enchantment, elegance, cheer, and classic family fun. Our annual Holiday Kick-off Lighting Ceremony event is packed with all the sights, sounds, and experiences of the holiday season. The iconic Williamsburg Inn will shine bright with thousands of shimmering lights.

We have a spectacular complimentary event planned.

During the Williamsburg Inn Lighting Event, please consider donating a new or gently used children’s book to The Village Initiative for Equity in Education.

A collection point will be located just off Francis Street. The Village has built and placed book boxes in multiple locations throughout Williamsburg and James City County to provide free books for students to encourage reading.  The Village promotes unity and education while building a bridge between local schools and parents, to help connect them with the needed tools for each child to reach their full potential.
