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 day begins with activities at the Carbon Valley Regional Library, 7 Park Ave., from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Santa will be there to hand out candy, and attendees can also create crafts.

Holiday fun continues with Firestone activities from 12 to 4 p.m. at Coal Ridge Middle School, 6201 Booth Drive. Kids can share their wish lists and take photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Santa’s Workshop will be in full production allowing kids to create their own gifts and ornaments. The Home Depot in Firestone will also present a kid’s clinic with fun activities for the season. The Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District will have fun activities for kids to engage with them, as well as opportunity to take photos with the firefighters. Attendees can enjoy hot chocolate, cookies and candy canes throughout the afternoon.  

Dacono will light things up from 4:30 to 6 p.m. with a tree lighting event at Dacono City Hall, 512 Cherry St. Guests can get “chili” with Santa with a Christmas Chili Cook Off and then take part in Christmas family photos with Firefighter Santa and Engine 10, an antique fire truck. There will be holiday entertainment, a chance to create holiday crafts and 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.
