Murphys Open House
Murphys Open House
Friday, December 2, 2022 (5:00 PM - 8:00 PM) (PST)
Every year on the first Friday in December, Murphys celebrates the start of the holiday season with a Community Open House from 5 to 8 pm. Admission is free, the streets are closed, and we are ready to celebrate. Open House is a great time to peruse Murphys’ shops, tasting rooms, and restaurants, see what’s new, visit with old friends, admire the community tree, and appreciate our small-town spirit.
A favorite of locals, the annual event is an old-fashioned community celebration featuring a holiday parade, treats, and entertainment hosted by Main Street merchants, restaurants, wineries, and the Murphys Business Association.
Musicians and carolers fill the streets with the sounds of the seasons, Santa arrives with the parade and stays for photos with the kids. Volunteers have come forward to help with the parade, so it will be back for 2022!
The Murphys Congregational Church will be participating again this year with carolers on Main Street as well as music and treats at their Church on Church Street, just one block off of Main Street. Carolers, and other entertainers, are welcome to join us on the street throughout the event; just contact us in advance, so we know to expect you.
Santa and Mrs Claus will be hanging out at V Bistro again this year. Bring the kiddos, bring a new unwrapped toy to donate, and take pictures with Santa! They will have cookies, hot chocolate, cider, and special goodie bags for the kids. If you choose to donate a bike, they will give you a coupon for 20% off your next visit! Let’s see what we can do to help the less fortunate families in our community! V Restaurant, Bistro & Bar is a proud sponsor of Toys For Tots. They will be collecting toys for local families in our county who could not otherwise afford to give their children a special Christmas. They will be collecting toys from until December 5th, and there’s no need to wait until Open House to drop off your donation, do it anytime between now and December 5th.
Cedar Creek Realty will be collecting canned goods for the Resource Center Food Bank this holiday season. Make a donation anytime during the holiday season and during Open House.
