Mark Your Calendars For These Holiday Events In Ridgefield

As all of the residents and homeowner’s in Ridgefield know, this town is a special place to call home throughout all four seasons of the year.

However, there are few times that are quite as special and festive as the Holiday season.

Each year, hardworking members of the Ridgefield community pool their efforts together to host a variety of Holiday-themed events that truly help to add to the spirit of the season for every family lucky enough to call this place home.

This year, I am excited to say there are many holiday-themed events planned from now through the new year. Here are just a few of my favorites from years past and a few that are new but highly-anticipated.

I hope to see you all there!

Ridgefield Holiday Stroll

December 1st from 6 pm to 10 pm

December 2nd – 10 am to 7 pm

Admission: Free

The Ridgefield Holiday Stroll has become one of the favorite holiday traditions in downtown Ridgefield. The area shops and homes are all decorated for the holidays and the overall feeling is nothing short of magical. Enjoy horse-drawn carriage tours of the town for a small cost, shop elegantly decorated shops, listen to strolling carolers, and see singing Toy Soldiers. Breakfast with Santa is available for the children on the December 2nd, and there will be several activities for children to enjoy each day. It is a must-experience event that will put you in the mood for the holidays and leave you enchanted.
