December 21 to 23 is the last 3rd Weekend Fling of the year, featuring shopping, music, theatre and delicious food and drink. Yellow Springs is the place for your last minute holiday shopping with 65 shops and galleries and fifteen eateries to enjoy with family and friends.
Shops and galleries will be open late Friday night, most until 8 or 9 pm. They will also have expanded hours during the final week of holiday shopping. You won’t find a better place for truly special, one-of-a-kind gifts than the eclectic, walk-able downtown Yellow Springs shopping district. Artisan crafts, fine arts, toys for kids of all ages, jewelry, clothing, wine, gourmet food and much more, you can find something special for everyone on your gift list and to fit every budget.
Visit the Yellow Springs Arts Council Gallery at 111 Corry St. for the Holiday Art Jumble Exhibit and Sale . You will find unique gifts at “can’t-resist” prices with special discounts from Santa’s Sack being offered Friday from 1-4 pm and again from 6-9 pm. And, don’t leave without taking a holiday picture in Santa’s Sleigh, festively adorned and parked right in front of the Gallery for the Holidays.
Emporium Wines hosts their regular Friday night wine tasting from 6:30 to 10, featuring the music of Mack and the Rockets. At Peachs Grill, the weekend starts with an “End of the World Party” on Friday with DJ Creepingbear and the Holiday Variety Show on Saturday. Both free events start at 10.
No visit to Yellow Springs is complete during the holidays without experiencing The Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill, 3.5 million lights adorning the mill, grounds and gorge along with a Miniature Village and Santa Museum. Open every evening except Christmas, Clifton Mill is located at 75 Water St. in Clifton just three miles east of Yellow Springs. Children 6 & under are free and others are $10.
