Middleburgh's Miracle on Main Street December 6th

Written By Editor on 11/26/19 | 11/26/19



Holiday delight.

And even chestnuts roasting on an open fire.

Middleburgh dashes into the holiday spirit with a blizzard of excitement for Miracle on Main Street on Friday, December 6 beginning with the 1st annual tree lighting celebration at 5:15 on the Middleburgh Central School lawn with village festivities wrapping up around 8:30.

This Charles Dickens-like event grows with each passing year not only in the hearts of this community but from afar as well. “This is the event I look most forward to all year,” said Bobbi Ryan, resident and volunteer.  “This is the event that brings people back year after year. Folks from out of town put this on their calendar and not only do they come back each year, they bring family and friends with them to experience this special evening.  There’s nothing like it!” 

The merriment has spread over the years to include businesses on Wells Ave, Railroad Ave, Chestnut and Clauverwie along with Main Street!  There are many free offerings including Selfies with Santa, stilt dancers, readings of holiday stories, live animals, caroling and a special treat, Santa's LIVE reindeer!

"We're thrilled to be able to invite Santa's Reindeer back to the Dr. Best Museum again this year. The museum’s carriage house will host the Elves Workshop with free activities for children. With the financial support of some very generous local businesses including Schoharie Dental, Carver Companies, Century 21 Rural Estates, Lindsey Giagni’s State Farm office and Fenimore Asset Management we've been able to arrange for the trip for two of Santa's fuzzy friends! This year they are traveling from Shortsville Reindeer Farm out of Shortsville, NY and we couldn’t be more excited!" local volunteer Bobbi Ryan said.

We have area businesses and non-profits selling everything from hot pretzels to soups, warmed chestnuts to baked goods.  All the while, you can pick up special gifts for loved ones or grab a meal at one of the amazing local restaurants with extended hours. 

Come share a truly Old-Fashioned Christmas in the beautiful, historic village of Middleburgh!  Additional parking behind the high school.
