This year due to Covid-19, we are adapting to circumstances and are doing things differently. Our festivals typically draw very large crowds and in our efforts to maximize safety for our community and visitors, we are canceling our Christmas Lighting Festival and countdown for 2020 which was scheduled the first three Saturdays and Sundays of December.
We still want to give people the gift and the magic of Leavenworth and will be hanging our beautiful Christmas lights in the downtown! They will be on every night, 7 days a week from Thanksgiving weekend through Valentine’s day! There is no pomp and circumstance or big reveal this year though, they will just be on at dusk every day for your enjoyment! That means you can come anytime and see them when the time is right for you! There will be no festival and events this year but there will still be the beauty of Leavenworth all aglow and if you prefer a virtual experience we will be delivering that as well this year.
Leavenworth is the outdoor recreation epicenter of Washington. Winter is no exception with lots of sunny days, deep snow and fun winter activities for the whole family. If a visit this winter to Leavenworth is in your plans, the Village of Lights will be here shining bright!
