Every creative venue, restaurant, hotel, library, local club, church, and sporting enthusiast team up in Aspen each year to throw the biggest dozen-day party the city sees all year. The 12 Days of Aspen festival is more than a set of events for the community and visitors to participate in. It’s a holiday mindset that brings everyone together to celebrate the season and new beginnings.
So if you are dreaming of a white Christmas packed with all the beauty of small-town charm this season, planning a few days in Aspen should be on the top of your list. Typically kicking off on December 21 and concluding with the welcoming of a new year as fireworks blast off over Aspen Mountain, 2021 dates and events are still TBD.
Meet Santa and Mrs. Claus. Attend a ballet. Light the Menorah. Listen to good music and enjoy yummy food. Cheer on ski racers. Roast marshmallows over an open fire. If you can imagine it, you will most likely find your favorite holiday inspiration in Aspen.
