Downtown Holiday Lighting Ceremony

The Downtown Holiday Lights will be up from November 3rd, 2017 until February 14th, 2018!

Find out more about this year's Holiday Lighting Ceremony below!

On Friday, November 3rd, historic Old Town Fort Collins will shine as thousands of strands of holiday lights ‘flip on’ to illuminate the alleyways, sidewalks and street-tops of our beloved Downtown during the Annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony.

The dazzling display of low energy and sustainable LED lights stretches through seven blocks to illuminate Old Town’s canopied treetops, unique storefronts and historic alleyways. The holiday lights can be enjoyed from anywhere along College Avenue, the northern boundary at Laporte Avenue and continuing south to Magnolia Street. Trees will be lit along Walnut Ave, Linden St., Pine St., Old Town Square, Oak Street Plaza, and Mountain Ave.
