About the Event
The Carbon Valley Holiday Festival is a collaborative effort between Firestone, Frederick and Dacono to host a full day of holiday activities in the Carbon Valley.

The festivities will kick off in Firestone with activities from 1 to 4 p.m. at Coal Ridge Middle School, 6201 Booth Drive. Kids can share their wish lists and have photos taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Santa’s Workshop will be in full production allowing kids to create their own gifts and ornaments. Kids also won’t want to miss the opportunity to get their photos taken with firemen from the Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District. Local performers will present a selection of holiday music, and attendees can enjoy hot chocolate, cookies and candy canes throughout the afternoon.  

Dacono will light things up from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. with a tree lighting event at Dacono City Hall, 512 Cherry St. Be sure to snap selfies with Santa and enjoy hot chocolate, cookies and holiday entertainment. Attendees can also make crafts and cards to take home. There will also be a limited number of holiday ornaments for giveaway.

Frederick’s Festival of Lights and 12th annual tree lighting will wrap up the day-long event from 6 to 8 p.m. at Crist Park, 105 Fifth St. Bundle up to enjoy horse-drawn carriage rides, a live ice carving demonstration resulting in an interactive display, photos with Santa and thousands of twinkling lights throughout the park. There will be music performances. While listening to holiday music and enjoying the lights, attendees will be able to enjoy hot cocoa and cookies.

Throughout the entire day, attendees are encouraged to bring a monetary donation for the Carbon Valley Santa Cops program or a can of food to exchange for a cup of hot chocolate at any of the community events.
