Holidays in Estes Park

The "Catch the Glow" holiday season in this charming town is a truly magical experience, spanning seven full weeks of unending celebrations. There are so many holiday inspired events awaiting you. From the Holiday Makers Market to a Miracle pop-up bar to the beloved Catch the Glow parade, Estes Park for the holidays keeps getting better and better. Get ready to witness Bond Park come alive, including two special weekends brimming with pure fun. From November 18 to January 1, you're cordially invited to meander through awe-inspiring light displays, strike poses in front of life-sized photo opportunities, and be amazed by the colossal pole light tree that mesmerizes with synchronized light and music shows, dazzling every 30 minutes each evening!

But that's not the end of the holiday enchantment. On December 9, return to Bond Park for the Frosty Beer Fest. This lively festival commemorates the season with live music, local brews, food trucks, and interactive games. The fun doesn't stop there! On December 16, bring your children to the Glow in the Park Family Day, where they can meet Santa and frozen princesses. After sharing their wish lists with Santa, many activities await, including a ride on a mechanical reindeer, an inflatable slide, a petting zoo, and a realm of entertaining games!
