Celebrate the most wonderful time of the year by visiting Leavenworth for it’s annual Christmas Lighting Festival! Each year, Leavenworth spreads Christmas cheer with three weekends of fun, food, and a completely magical holiday experience.
Thousands of visitors come from all over to spend the day or entire weekend participating in holiday events in the Bavarian Village decked out in holiday lights. Throughout the day enjoy festive musical performances in the gazebo, carolers strolling through town, chestnuts roasting, sledding in Front Street Park, hot spiced wine and cocoa, costumed Christmas characters, Santa, and much more! This year’s festival takes place on each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday between December 6 – December 22, 2019 at WA Front Street, Leavenworth, WA 98826.
As always, be sure to dress in layers. Leavenworth can be very cold with temperatures hovering around the zero mark. There have also been some unusual years where it has been unseasonably mild or rainy.
Admission is free and the event is great for all ages! To learn more about this year’s festival, and where to stay, eat, and shop, check out their website.
