The Heritage Alliance will host the 43rd Colors of Christmas Progressive Dinner on Saturday, December 4 at 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 7:40 p.m.

Now in its 43rd year, the Progressive Dinner is a unique event that combines fine food, rich history and great entertainment. The event takes place at four different locations and guests will move to each location as the evening progresses.

The event will start at the Chuckey Depot Museum, a restored train depot and Jonesborough’s newest museum. The event will continue at a pre-Civil War frame house on Woodrow Avenue that was once a school. The next stop will be dinner at the McKinney Center at Booker T. Washington School, and dessert will take place in a beautifully restored home on East Main Street that has never been featured on the dinner before.

Ticket price is $100 per person and proceeds go toward the educational programs of the Heritage Alliance. Seating is limited, and this event typically sells out.
