The Christmas in Plain Dealing Committee is a small group of concerned citizens that have a yearly Christmas in Plain Dealing Festival and decorate the downtown streets during the Christmas Holiday. Their goal is to have a “good ‘ol country Christmas festival.”

The festival is made possible by a Spaghetti Supper Fund Raiser in March, a Flea Market in May and a Trap Shoot in August, Raffle tickets are sold and donations are taken from local businesses.

The festival is always on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, featuring music in the park all day long, a tractor show, demos of Cast Iron Cooking, Blacksmithing along with other things of interest. Vendors with crafts, Historic Pictures, Book signing from local authors, hands on activities for the children, a clown and Santa are a tradition. New this year will be a carnival area with several booths for the children.
