The TV show “Small Town Christmas” from Fox Business Network is coming to Oxford to film an episode from Nov. 17-20. This show travels to different small towns to show how they celebrate Christmas, with each 30-minute episode focusing on one town’s local holiday traditions, like food, music and other festivities​.

The filming in Oxford will happen alongside two local events: the Holly Jolly Holidays opening on Nov. 18 and the Lighting of the Square on Nov. 19.

On Nov. 18, filming will occur at the Old Armory Pavilion from 4 to 6 p.m. during the Holly Jolly Holidays opening. There will be a live ice carving, visits with Santa, and activities for kids like inflatables and a climbing wall at this event. The Powerhouse will also have a “mock” ornament auction party.
