3rd Annual Old Fashioned Christmas Celebration

Downtown Pagosa Springs

400 US 160
Pagosa Springs, Colorado


Join us December 16th from 5-7pm for the 3rd annual Old Fashioned Christmas Celebration in downtown Pagosa Springs. 

Enjoy over 25 Christmas-themed displays and activities, a hot air balloon glow, live music, free hot chocolate and cider, games, toys and other goodies. And, of course, Santa Claus!  Santa will arrive at his workshop at the Visitor Center shortly after 5pm, with opportunities to view his arrival along San Juan Street and Hot Springs Blvd bridge. 

The route extends along the Riverwalk from Centennial Park to Town Park, crossing Veterans Bridge and down San Juan Street to the visitor center.  Entry points for the walking route include (1) Town Park, (2) Visitor Center and (3) Centennial Park. Look for decorated white tents at the key entry points to receive decorative lights and a scavenger hunt card to win a free ornament.

Attendees are encouraged to bring flashlights. The event will be held regardless of weather! 

This event is a collaboration of the Town of Pagosa Springs and The Pagosa Springs SUN.

Please join us for a fun and festive evening in downtown Pagosa Springs to celebrate the spirit of the holiday season.
