Hear some delightful Christmas caroling by the combined choirs of Blountville Middle School and Holston Middle School. And don't miss a tour of the Old Deery Inn! What a festive way to ring in the Christmas Season!

Historic Blountville Christmas Tree Lighting
โ€œOne Special Townโ€ฆ Two Special Treesโ€

The Sullivan County Department of Archives and Tourism is pleased to announce that Historic Blountville will host one of the largest tree lighting ceremonies ever held at the county seat.

This yearโ€™s festivities will begin at 6 PM, on Thursday, December 8, 2016, at the Sullivan County Courthouse located at 3411 Hwy. 126, Blountville, TN. Special guests will include Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey, District Attorney General Barry Staubus, Sullivan County Mayor Richard Venable, and WJHLโ€™s Josh Smith who will preside as Master of Ceremonies.

Mayor Venable will do the honor of lighting the town Christmas tree, a massive thirty-foot blue spruce that adorns the front lawn of the historic courthouse.

Christmas caroling will be presented by a combined choir of over 100 students from Blountville Middle School under the direction of Darren Malcolm, and Holston Middle School under the direction of Melissa Haas. Additional music will be provided by special bagpiper, Jon Schell, of Elizabethton.

As a unique addition to this yearโ€™s event, the Hope for Victims Support and Advocacy Group will light a special tree in remembrance of victims of violence. Victims Remembrance Tree Organizer Joan Berry said, โ€œIt is in remembrance of everyone that has lost a loved one to homicide. Holidays can be extremely sad for families who have lost a loved one to violent crime. The remembrance tree gives families from East Tennessee the opportunity to do something special for their loved ones.โ€ Area residents are encouraged to participate by bringing an ornament in honor of family members lost to violence.

The Old Deery Inn and Museum will be open from 5 PM to 6 PM, and from 6:45 PM to 8:30 PM. The historic inn will showcase its own 1800s Christmas tree and period Christmas decorations. Historians in period attire will be on hand to lead the tours.

Food vendors will be offering hot chocolate and a variety of other items including hamburgers, hot dogs, barbeque, funnel cakes, deep fried oreos, nachos, chili cheese fries and more.

What a wonderful way to ring in the Christmas Season!

The Historic Blountville Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremonies are sponsored by the Sullivan County Department of Archives and Tourism and the partnership of First Judicial District Attorney Generalโ€™s office and the local chapter of the Hope for Victims Support and Advocacy Group.
