Every December sleepy Georgetown transforms into a sparkling Christmas wonderland. For two weekends Georgetown hosts their annual Christmas Market, now in its 60th year.
It’s a bustling time of year in Clear Creek County, host to old time holiday traditions. Roasted chestnuts, festive shopping and horse-drawn wagon rides all await in historic Georgetown. Events kick off on Saturday, December 1st, 2019 with a holiday reading of “The Night Before Christmas” in the Hamill House Library. The main Old World Christmas Market is held over two weekends, December 7-8 and 14-15, 2019.
Colorado’s Georgetown Christmas Market
Experience Christmas the way it was 100 years ago in the Old West at Georgetown Christmas Market. Saint Nicholas attends in traditional dress, as do Victorian carolers and dancers. There is a daily procession of the Santa Lucia, a traditional Neapolitan song.
6th Street in historic downtown is lined with twinkling lights, holiday wreaths and hopefully, convered with snow. The Christmas Market has been a special family gathering for generations, consider making it an annual tradition for you this season.
This outdoor European market is free admission and holiday entertainment. Enjoy roasted chestnuts, horse-drawn wagon rides, St. Nicholas, Santa Lucia Children’s Procession and Christmas Museum tours.
