Alderson 4th of July Committee Presents...
Alderson Jingle Bell Fun Fest
The Alderson 4th of July Committee is proud to present the first-ever Alderson Jingle Bell Fun Fest! This event is a fundraiser for the festival which faced an extreme hardship due to the remnants of the derecho storm that cancelled the annual July festival. The funds raised at this event will go toward building back the treasury to allow a fantastic 2013 festival. The committee would like to thank Alderson Medical Center for their help in sponsoring this event!
The Jingle Bell Fun Fest is on Saturday, December 15, from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm and will be held at the Alderson Community Center. The Jingle Bell Fun Fest will be the first of its kind in the Greenbrier Valley with a schedule of events that has something for everyone! In addition to the great events listed below, you will find:
- Vendors and Crafters

Kicking off the holiday fun will be a special treat for young and old with a “Breakfast with Santa” from 8:00 am to 11:00 am. The breakfast will include pancakes, sausage, a holiday treat for the children, and beverages. Breakfast is pay-at-the-door and $5 a plate. Santa will be arriving from the North Pole just in time for this special breakfast! Photo opportunities will be available.
Beginning at 12:00 pm, racers will be on their mark for the Children’s Santa Chase! Our “special guest” will lead off this fun run and walk for ages 10 and under.
