Greetings from Suffolk Tourism!

December is shaping up to be a busy and festive month in Suffolk! Expect lots of family activities, fun movies, spectacular performances, guided tours, and so much more! Here’s a glimpse of what you can expect:

  • The Annual Artisan Gift Fair is scheduled for Saturday, December 3, 2022, at the Suffolk Visitor Center Pavilion.

This popular annual event showcases some of the area’s best artisans, crafters, and vendors at an outdoor holiday market. Artisan-quality crafts, jewelry, soaps, fine art, candles, woodcrafts, crocheted items, jams and jellies, holiday decorations, wreaths, baked goods, seasonal produce, meats, and so much more will be on display from 9am to 2pm. There will also be holiday music, face painting, balloon animals, and a visit from Santa! The Artisan Gift Fair is free and open to the public.

  • The Annual Holiday Parade will be rocking it’s way through Downtown Suffolk on Saturday, December 10, 2022!

Find the best spot to watch the floats, equestrian units, marching bands, and festive vehicles as they make their way down West Washington Street and turn up North Main Street, with the parade route ending at Finney Avenue. Be sure to grab a seat to catch all the great performances! This year’s theme is “Lights, Camera, Holiday!”

  • Want to take the kids to a fun family movie? Why not join us on Sunday, December 11, when Suffolk Tourism sponsors the screening of Cruella at the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts!

Admission is $1 and the movie will begin at 2pm. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit or call the Box Office at 757.923.2900. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
