Be Merry, Be Bright, Share Your Golden Light!

There’s nothing more heart-warming during the holidays than a small town old fashioned Christmas, and no one does it better than historic Golden, CO. With quaint holiday shops and festive decorations along historic Washington Ave. and thousands of twinkling lights lining the banks of clear creek, Golden is right out of a Christmas movie. 

Golden’s beloved Candlelight Walk will return on Dec. 3 with holiday revelers strolling Washington Avenue holding candles and singing carols.  Golden’s Holiday Parade returns Dec. 11 with marching bands, floats, Newfoundland dogs (no cart rides this year due to the pandemic), horses, Victorian carolers, elves, fire trucks, and, of course, Santa. Return for a magical day in Golden meeting and mingling with family favorite holiday characters along Washington Avenue on December 18 during the Jingle On the Avenue.
