Golden’s Candlelight Walk

Pre-show at 5 pm, Walk begins at 6:30 pm

Experience the beauty of the holiday season with a candlelit walk down Washington Avenue in historic Golden, Colorado. Sing carols with neighbors and friends and marvel as the street is illuminated by thousands of glowing candles and the warmth of the festive, small-town holiday atmosphere. Many of the shops along Washington Avenue are open and there are hot cider, cocoa, and outdoor cafes to enjoy along the way. At the conclusion of the walk, the “switch” for Golden’s 45,000-holiday lights along Clear Creek and throughout downtown will be flipped, marking the official start to Golden’s holiday season.
