Take a step back in time this holiday season at Palisade’s Olde Fashioned Christmas December 1st and 2nd. Famous for its vineyards and wine tours, Palisade invites you to participate in another unique and very special event, where carolers sing, cocoa is poured, and holiday shopping focuses on craft.

Starting at 5:00 pm on December 1st and continuing until 4:00 pm on December 2nd, This Olde Fashioned Christmas celebration will take you out of the hustle and bustle often associated with this time of year and into a place filled with traditional holiday magic.

With all the sights, sounds, and tastes of holidays gone by, Palisade offers a pleasurable holiday shopping experience filled with soup sampling, carolers, carriage rides, gingerbread creations, and lots and lots of good cheer.

It all begins on Friday evening at 5:00 pm with caroling by the Taylor Elementary Serenaders as they march up Main Street to the Town Plaza to light the town tree. Warm up with hot cocoa and coffee on the plaza or purchase a cup of soup from Altrusia’s Cup of Warmth at the Slice of Life Bakery. The Parade of Lights will follow at 5:30 pm with floats, bands, horses, fire trucks, buggies, and of course, Santa.

Craft vendors ready to help you complete your shopping lists will be at the Downtown Marketplace from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday. Santa’s Gingerbread Workshop also takes place on Saturday, where kids can make a craft ornament and decorate a gingerbread house cookie baked by the elves at the Community Hospital. Santa will be there too, so have your wish lists ready!

A parade, cookies, music, Santa, crafts, and more! It’s a Palisade tradition. Visit for more information.
