Fort Collins Downtown Holiday Lighting Ceremony

Fort Collins Downtown Lighting Ceremony

Fort Collins Downtown Holiday Lighting Ceremony

Old Town Fort Collins illuminates the dark winter nights every year from November to February. Look out your hotel window onto College Avenue: The enchantment of luminescent trees coiled and twined with thousands of strands of white lights will make you feel like a child witnessing a glimpse of magic!

This Friday, November 3, beginning at 5:30 pm, Fort Collins holds their annual Downtown Holiday Lighting Ceremony.  The festivities are centered at the Oak Street Plaza, located at Oak Street and College Avenue, less than a block north of the Armstrong Hotel. The event will include music, cookies, hot cocoa, and cider. Around 6:30 pm, all the lights in downtown —exclusively LED this year — will officially be turned on for the season.

Lighted trees will stretch along Walnut Avenue, Linden Street, Pine Street, Old Town Square, Oak Street Plaza, and Mountain Avenue. “The lighting project is a joint endeavor between the Downtown Fort Collins Business Association, The Downtown Development Authority and the City of Fort Collins.”
