Each December the town of Georgetown transforms for two weekends into a bustling Christmas scene reminiscent of Christmas of long ago. Thousands come to this tiny mountain town to experience a traditional holiday where Christmas hasn't changed in 100 years: roasted chestnuts, holiday shopping, horse-drawn wagon rides through historic Georgetown, and wonderful sights and smells. Visitors enjoy appearances by St. Nicholas in his traditional dress and the daily procession of the Santa Lucia. Carolers in Victorian costume, dancers, and other family entertainment provide hours of memorable performances. Adorned with lights and Christmas greenery and blanketed with snow, the quaint, historic town of Georgetown, Colorado has been a Christmas tradition for generations of Colorado families. 

The 2014 Georgetown Christmas Market will be held the first and second weekends of December and admission is FREE. Christmas Market features an outdoor European marketplace with handcrafted gifts in addition to Georgetown's charming year-round shopping experience. Beautiful and unique shops showcase Christmas ornaments and decorations, Victorian items for the home, art, Colorado wine, rare books, jewelry, exquisite clothing, antiques, and gifts. The Market will also feature food vendors in addition to our fabulous local restaurants. Please visit www.town.georgetown.co.us for more information on local businesses.

Christmas Market Museum Tours offer a relaxed way to see the Hamill House Museum, 305 Argentine St., Hotel de Paris & Energy Museums, located downtown. Docents are on-hand to give information or answer questions, but guests may stroll through the properties at their leisure to enjoy the holiday décor. Prices vary.

Teas at Grace Hall
The Grace & Episcopal church will again offer holiday teas at the Snetzer Building. All proceeds benefit the Grace Foundation & Loaves and Fishes food bank. Reservations are recommended. High Tea will include assorted teas, savory tarts or tea sandwiches, sweet pastries, fruit bread, and scones with Devonshire Cream. Tea will be served each day of Christmas Market on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.  Tickets can be purchased  in advance by calling (303) 569-2276 or emailing graceteas@gmail.com.  Reservations required.
