Join Localworks, Wheat Ridge Parks and Recreation and the City of Wheat Ridge for this year’s Holiday Celebration on December 3rd, 2022. Kick off the holiday season right and come join in on the fun! There will be free horse carriage rides, a trackless train, cider, hot chocolate and so much more! Whether you’re inside the grange doing crafts or visiting the Holiday Market to shop for gifts, you’re sure to find something to enjoy!

We have a very special and jolly fellow joining our celebration this year! Santa will arrive from the North Pole to Wheat Ridge Cyclery at 3:30. Please be mindful that we are doing things a little differently this year, as Santa is a very busy man this time of year! Santa will sit for photos at Wheat Ridge Cyclery from 3:30-5:30pm.  Following the seated photo window, Santa will visit with families on the Green and help us prepare for our tree lighting at 6:30 p.m.

During the two two hour window that Santa will be seated for pictures inside of Wheat Ridge Cyclery we will do our best to serve as many families as possible for a seated picture. These pictures are free to community members, so unfortunately we cannot meet the demand for a seated picture for the entire community. Seated pictures will be given on a first come first serve basis, and you must have a ticket in order to get a seated picture with Santa. Tickets are free, but there is a limited amount of tickets available. We strongly encourage you to arrive at the event early to give you the best chance possible to secure a ticket for a seated Santa picture! Don’t worry, if you are unable to get a ticket in time, he will still be wandering for selfies and photos on the “Green” before the tree lighting ceremony!

The tree lighting ceremony will begin at 6:30. We can’t wait to see you there!
