Wheat Ridge Holiday Celebration

The City of Wheat Ridge is proud to host the annual Holiday Celebration and Tree Lighting! Step into a winter wonderland and embrace the joyous spirit of the holiday season at the City of Wheat Ridge’s Holiday Celebration!

This family (and pet) friendly event offers an abundance of holiday-themed activities, including horse drawn carriage rides, roaming carolers, arts and crafts, refreshments, photos with Santa, the annual tree-lighting ceremony and more!

We have a very special guest joining us all the way from the North Pole for this year’s holiday celebration! Santa will arrive at Wheat Ridge Cyclery at 3:00pm for seated photos. Photos with Santa are free to our community members and will be done on a first come, first serve basis.

To see Santa you must have a ticket which will be available outside of Wheat Ridge Cyclery at 2:50 pm. We will do our best to serve as many families as possible for a seated photo, but unfortunately in order to get Santa back to his workshop on time, we cannot meet the demand for a seated picture for the entire community. We encourage you to arrive at the event early to give you the best chance possible to secure a ticket for a seated Santa picture.

If you arrive and no tickets are available, don’t worry! There are several more opportunities to get the festive photo you may be looking for. Santa will roam the event between 5:30-6:30pm and will be happy to pose for a photo during that time.
