Every winter Leavenworth shines bright with over half a million lights 6am until 11pm each day from Thanksgiving thru the last day of February!
On Christmas day most shops and restaurants will be closed as our hard-working small business owners spend the holiday with family. The Leavenworth Chamber of Commerce curates a list of which restaurants and shops will be open on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day but many shops and restaurants won’t know until late November. When the list is ready it will be posted to the main page of Leavenworth.org.
The day after Christmas will be business as usual with the shops, restaurants, and activities in full swing. You won’t see Santa, Mrs. Claus or Rudolph and friends the week following Christmas (they’re back at the North Pole getting a much deserved break), but there will still be plenty to see and do. Take a sleigh ride, visit the reindeer farm, zip down the hillside on your skis or a snow tube and then head to town for shopping, hot drinks and dinner. Winter activities fill up fast, so it’s best to make reservations at least 3 weeks before your visit. For more information, please visit our Winter Fun page!
