GOLDEN, CO Christmas Lights

Golden will be brighter than ever this year, with holiday lights along Washington Avenue, Clear Creek, and Golden History Park. Thousands of sparkling lights will illuminate the historic buildings and park – inside and out – for a festive place to make new memories. Plan a special night to walk along the Creek and make it your most wonderful time of the year. Enjoy the lights nightly at dusk (5:00 pm). Free and open to the public.




  • Holiday lights along the Clear Creek path, Golden Visitors Center, Parfet Park, Washington Street bridges, and South Golden Road are turned on around Thanksgiving time and they remain on until February 15 giving you extra time for a sweet stroll through historic downtown.  
  • Light the Lights - Nov. 30 - After the Candlelight Walk, local dignitaries will "Light the Lights" along Clear Creek followed by a small fireworks display launched from the roof of The Golden Hotel.
