Downtown is Where We

experience Community


Welcome to Wonderful

Williamsburg Downtown is ​a non-profit, economic development organization, created in partnership with the City of Williamsburg to enhance the awareness and economic vitality of the downtown business district. 

Our volunteer board of directors, comprised of residents, business owners, faith leaders and community advocates works together to curate and support city improvement projects and events that make the most of Williamsburg's historical and natural beauty.

Williamsburg has more to offer residents and tourists than they often realize. It's our goal to shine a light on all that this wonderful community has to offer.

With Yankee Candle closed, Williamsburg's favorite Santa will be in the heart of downtown from 11/26 - 12/24, daily from 12-8pm this year. Santa’s Elves will convert the Memorie Group Real Estate office at 439 Prince George Street into Santas Workshop for the whole Christmas season.


$50 photo sessions will be pre-sold in order to eliminate the need for standing in long lines, so you can explore and enjoy your time downtown. Sessions are grouped in 30 minute increments, and we ask that you aim to arrive at the start of your 30 minute block. Only 1-2 families will be allowed in the studio at a time in order to minimize possible COVID exposure.

You will receive a high resolution digital copy of all photos taken. Prints can be made anywhere.


All proceeds go to local non-profit organizations participating in the event. Follow the Williamsburg Downtown Facebook page for updates and details.
