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, covered 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.
