Get In Line: Jingle Jam Tickets Go On Sale Monday

You’ll want to set your alarm early Monday—very early.

Tickets for Leesburg’s incredibly popular holiday concert go on sale at 5 a.m. Monday, Nov. 16, and they’re expected to go fast.

Jingle Jam, set for Saturday, Dec. 13, showcases the talents of 10 musicians who collaborate to bring audiences their favorite holiday tunes with a rock ’n’ roll twist.

Three performances are planned—the Junior Jam, aimed at kids, at 11:30 a.m. and regular performances at 2:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.—at Tally Ho Theatre 19 W. Market St. in Leesburg. Families will also want to stop by Leesburg’s Town Green between noon and 1 p.m. to have their photo taken with the Jingle Jam Santa.

This year’s Jingle Jam band includes Grammy Award-winner Jon Carroll; acclaimed singer-songwriter Todd Wright; Leesburg’s own Gary Smallwood; Grammy Award-nominee Michael Sheppard; sought-after studio guitarist and producer Mark Williams; blues singer Mary Ann Redmond; drummer Dan Garvin; songwriter and guitarist Prescott Engle; and songwriter and Jingle Jam founder Stilson Greene.

Tickets to the annual concert are among the most sought-after in Loudoun. Historically, they’ve sold out for all three performances within hours of sales opening, so those interested are encouraged to queue up early. It’s not uncommon for a line to form in front of the Ida Lee Park Recreation Center starting about 2 a.m. the day of the sales, Greene said

Those “brave souls” who line up early Monday can expect a mini acoustic concert from Todd Wright, Greene added. Jingle Jam sponsor Cerphe Colwell, of Music Planet Radio, has also been known to deliver donuts about an hour before ticket sales begin.

There’s a five-ticket-per-person limit, and all purchases must be made in person. Admission to the afternoon and evening concerts is $25 per person, and $5 per person for the Junior Jam. All proceeds from the shows benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
