Holidays in Holland

Celebrate the Season

Journey back to a time of festive wonder where twinkle-lit trees and evergreen-wrapped lampposts add a sparkle to the season’s sensations. Go on, imagine a Holiday Open House with roasting chestnuts and strolling carolers. Envision Santa coming to town in a dazzling Parade of Lights. Dream of a towering Dutch windmill glittering in the night and surrounded by thousands of LED “tulips.” 

These are just glimmers of the festive fun on its way to our historic town. As the holidays approach, you can warm up at a roaring fireplace on the way to the outdoor Dutch Kerstmarkt, with its hand-woven mittens, homemade wreaths, and blacksmith-forged ornaments. You can also experience a Victorian Christmas, meet Sinterklaas as he hosts Magic at the Mill, and stir your spirit with carols played by the Holland Symphony beneath a Gothic rose window. 

While any day is a good day to wander our downtown with a spiced beverage in hand, a little strategic planning might add an extra dash of joy. Check our calendar for all the festivities!
