Golden’s Candlelight Walk Returns on Friday, December 3, 2021

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 is hot cider, cocoa and outdoor cafes to enjoy along the way. At the conclusion of the walk, the “switch” for Golden’s 50,000 holiday lights along Clear Creek and throughout downtown will be flipped, marking the official start to Golden’s holiday season

Olde Golden Candlelight Walk

Pre-walk festivities and entertainment, including holiday dancers and music, will be on stage near the Golden Visitors Center at 10th and Washington Avenue starting at 5 p.m. and the walk begins in front of Foothills Art Center at 15th Street and Washington Avenue at 6:30 p.m.
