Estes Park is a beautiful place to vacation year-round, but there’s something special about visiting during the holiday season. When dusted with snow, the town looks like an idyllic holiday village. However, it isn’t just the fact that Estes Park looks the part; it’s also bursting with tons of holiday spirit. 

There’s no better place to experience holiday cheer in Colorado than in Estes Park. From lights parades to wine festivals and everything in between, there’s a holiday event for everyone. To help you find a suitable holiday event for you, the team at Estes Park Condos has put together a guide highlighting some of the best holiday events in the area.

Catch the Glow Parade

Every year on the Friday after Thanksgiving, downtown Estes Park is brightened by a dazzling display of holiday lights at the Catch the Glow Parade. This parade is one of Colorado’s most famous holiday celebrations and an event you won’t want to miss. Grab a spot on Elkhorn Avenue to catch this spectacular holiday parade. The parade features more than 40 units, including decorated floats, marching bands, fire trucks, and more. 

Estes Park Holiday Wine Festival

Following the Catch the Glow Parade, there’s a holiday event the very next day, the Estes Park Holiday Wine Festival. This festival is a celebration of Colorado wines, with a special emphasis on the holidays. Attendees will enjoy sipping wine as they visit the shops in downtown Estes Park. Tickets to the Estes Park holiday Wine Festival include a commemorative wine glass, wine tote, and unlimited tastings from Colorado wineries. 

Annual Menorah Lighting & Chanukah Celebration

Join Mayor Wendy Koening in Bond Park for the Annual Menorah Lighting and Chanukah Celebration. This celebration features the lighting of the giant Menorah, Jewish holiday music, traditional Chanukah foods, and more.
