When we go on vacation it’s nice to occasionally join in on a celebration, activity, or community event and truly feel like we are part of the close-knit community that exists in small mountain towns such as Winter Park. In between tearing up the slopes and doing some urban exploring, make sure you check out the various winter events and activities that are being held around you. We understand that it can be difficult to sort through the various websites and calendars to find said events, so we’ve done the hard work and put together a list of some of the top Winter Park events occurring this winter! As we explore the various Winter Park CO events and goings-on, we will start the journey with some of the smaller, more cozy events that you might find yourself fancying while you stay with us. Check out the events below!
As December approaches and as the city streets gleam with the light of hundreds of colored bulbs, wreaths deck the doors of every neighborhood, and a crisp festive energy hangs in the air, you will find a variety of Christmas events beginning to take place. For instance, make sure you check out the Festival of Trees. Enjoy meandering through the rows and rows of majestic and beautifully decorated trees and choose your own personal winner of the contest. Afterward, join in the heat of the auction as the various trees are sold off, and feel a warmth in your soul knowing that all the proceeds will be going to various non-profits. Not to mention, Santa was rumored to be making a special appearance.
If you find yourself staying with us for the Christmas holiday, take part in the festivities on Christmas even for the annual Torchlight Parade, where the mountain will be lit up with hundreds of torches, flares, and fireworks as the sun sets, and the Santa begins his long annual journey around the world, though he’ll, of course, have time to show up and shake a few hands before heading out. If you find yourself growing chilly, make sure to grab a nice warm drink as you huddle around the large bonfire at the base, which will give a mysterious flickering glow to the festivities around you.
While this town does have its own range of unique and interesting events taking place throughout the winter months, you should take the chance to explore some of the surrounding area’s events as well, as you’ll find some are quite unique.
