All aboard! The Chuckey Depot Museum is bringing some Christmas cheer to Tennessee’s oldest town on Tuesday, December 13th. Several musical groups are coming together to share the joy of the season through song and dance at the McKinney Center that evening starting at 6:15 pm. Acts include local duo Alathea, Studio Dance, the Appalachian Irish Dance Company, Jonesborough Golden Heirs Choir, Jonesborough Senior Center, Johnson City Senior Chorale, and area children’s choirs. They’ll be coming together to present “Forever Christmas” by Mac Huff. There will also be additional songs and even some celebrity guests, including Santa Claus and Rudolph. The concert is directed by Cherry Smith.
The pre-show will begin at 6:15 pm at the McKinney Center in Jonesborough. The main concert begins at 7:00 pm. The main show will last an hour. If you come for the pre-show, expect to stay for two hours. The concert is free, but donations are encouraged. All donations go to the educational programs and exhibits at the Chuckey Depot Museum. The museum is located on Second Avenue in a historic Southern Railroad depot that was moved from Chuckey, TN, to save it from demolition. Today, the museum shares the history of the Chuckey community as well as the history of the Railroad in the region. The museum is free of charge so all donations to help with changing exhibits and programming is appreciated.
Seating is limited at the McKinney Center. There are only 125 seats available for this program. There is no way to reserve seats in advance. We recommend you get there when the McKinney Center opens at 5:45 pm to make sure you get a seat. Concessions will be provided by Paws in Blue. We hope you will join us on December 13th as we celebrate the Chuckey Depot Museum and the Holiday season.
