Join us at Holiday Celebration 2018!
Start off your holiday season with carolers, hot cocoa, crafts, Santa Claus, train rides and more! Localworks and the City of Wheat Ridge are excited to kick off the season with the seventh annual Holiday Celebration on Saturday, December 1 from 3 to 6:30pm.
Gather on the Green on Ridge at 38 (7101 W 38th Avenue) at 6:30pm to be a part of the magical tree lighting ceremony. This is the City’s official tree lighting ceremony with more than 12,000 multi-color bulbs that light up the spectacular 25-foot evergreen! Check out the full list of event activities below.
We’ll also be collecting nonperishable food items to donate to a local food bank. Please drop off any items that you’d like to donate to the Wheat Ridge Grange.
This community building event is presented and organized by Localworks. We are a non-profit organization advancing Wheat Ridge as a vibrant and sustainable community since 2005. Our events on Ridge at 38 are meant to celebrate Wheat Ridge and connect local community members and businesses. Learn more about Localworks and our work in the community at WeAreLocalworks.org.
