2020 Come Home for Christmas theme: “It’s a Wonderful Life”Nov 1, 2020 We are gearing up for our annual Christmas event, Saturday, November 28, and this year’s Come Home For Christmas Theme is “It’s a Wonderful Life”! Keep up with the day’s schedule and attractions on our Facebook Event Page. Many more details about the day and evening to come!
Christmas Tree Decorating Contest and Auction:
We will have the contest on the courthouse lawn. Businesses and organizations are invited to compete. We will have a panel of non-partisan judges and the winning group will receive the annual “Christmas Cup Trophy” to show off until next year. The trees will then be auctioned off to raise money for the courthouse Christmas lights. Trees will be set up the morning of the 28th for decorating. Participants can create their own theme. Cost of the trees and decorations will be the responsibility of the participant. We are currently working on the tree cost and ordering processes details.
Christmas Non-Parade Parade:
We are having another static parade this year. Create your own lighted parade float and park at your business or at a requested spot in Greenville. We would like to create a trail of floats to stretch from the square all the way out to the Farm Heritage Museum. Parade viewers can then walk or drive past your beautiful creations.

Cancelled and Postponed EventsApril 1, 2020 Hello, everyone! Thank you so much for all of the interest and support you give all of our events in Greenville. The City, the Chamber of Commerce, the museums and organizations truly appreciate it very much. I am sad to say that several of our events have been cancelled or postponed this year. Since event insurance does not cover events that are cancelled due to pandemic related restrictions and with the uncertainty of the next few months many cannot risk the monetary loss. Below are events that have either been cancelled or postponed for 2020:
Cardinal Baseball Luncheon: Postponed
The Gerald Turley Award Reception: Postponed
Dairy Days: Cancelled
The Greenville Graffiti Car Show: Cancelled
Bond County Fourth Fest: “Drive In” Fireworks Show Saturday, July 4, at approximately 9:30 PM.
Bond County Fair: Cancelled
Paws In The Park: Cancelled
Halloween Trunk Or Treat: Moved to Bond County Fairgrounds with new Sponsor
If you have an event that has been cancelled or postponed, please contact the Greenville Chamber of Commerce.
