Carbon Valley Holiday Festival


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. Santa will be there for photos, and attendees can also create crafts.

Holiday fun continues with Firestone activities from 1 to 4 p.m. at Coal Ridge Middle School, 6201 Booth Drive. Kids can share their wish lists and take photos with Santa. Santa’s Workshop will be in full production allowing kids to create their own gifts and ornaments, with even some fun crafts designed for older kids this year. Attendees can enjoy hot chocolate and cookies throughout the afternoon.  

Dacono will light things up with a tree lighting event at Dacono City Hall. Guests can get “chili” with Santa with Christmas Chili and then take part in Christmas family photos with Santa. There will be wagon rides, a chance to create holiday crafts and a limited number of holiday ornaments for giveaway.

Frederick’s Festival of Lights and 15th annual tree lighting will wrap up the day-long event at Crist Park. 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. While listening to holiday music and enjoying the lights, attendees will be able to enjoy hot cocoa and cookies.
