Escape from the modern distractions, and celebrate an old-fashioned Christmas in Cripple Creek and Victor.
Holiday activities will kick off with the nightly Gold Camp Christmas Holiday Headframe Lighting throughout Cripple Creek and Victor.
Experience the lights in the Gold Camp by taking a drive (with your favorite Christmas tunes playing) on a self-guided tour through our area as our mine headframes are decorated with large Christmas light displays. Would you prefer a guided tour? Then be sure to check out the detailed schedule of events for the time and date for the guided tour over the main event weekend.
While activities will be happening all month long, our main event weekend is packed full of fun activities that are too good to miss! Stop by the Christmas Craft Fair where you can find items made by local crafters and win prizes!
Decorated Christmas trees, available for purchase through the Live Tree Auction, will be on display for your enjoyment and holiday decorating inspiration. Don’t miss our Christmas Parade with appearances from Santa, as well as several parade participants who will be showing off their interpretation of this year’s theme.
Festive activities for children include gift making, crafts, a scavenger hunt, skating around the Christmas Tree, gingerbread ornament decorating and numerous opportunities to whisper Christmas wishes in Santa’s ear! And, of course, no Christmas would be complete without s’mores and marshmallows roasting on an open fire and free hot chocolate and cider to warm your hands and soul.
