Holidays in the City

There are two types of people in this world – those who put their holiday decorations up as soon as candy has been collected from Halloween and those who wait until after the Thanksgiving feast is over. No matter which category you fall into, there’s one thing everyone can agree on – Columbus seems to get a bit more magical this time of year. Here are the sites to see, places to go and magic to experience right here in the great city of Columbus.

Easton Town Center Christmas

Easton Holiday Lighting Ceremony

November 20th at 6:30pm

This 17th annual event is a chance to celebrate the simple joys of the holiday season with classic entertainment for all. Involve, engage and surprise your loved ones with the arrival of Santa, the illumination of Easton’s 50-ft Christmas tree and a breathtaking display of lights.

Wildlights at the Columbus Zoo

Wildlights at the Zoo

One of Central Ohio’s favorite family traditions, the Wildlights at the Zoo, will kick-off on November 20th. This year, the lights will be efficiently powered by AEP Ohio and will include millions of LED lights, three animated musical light shows and more holiday festivities to be announced.

Grand Illumination

December 4th at TBA

Downtown Columbus has a skyline that is noteworthy any time of the year. Add thousands of breathtaking twinkling lights and the result is awe-inspiring. The Scioto Mile hosts the Grand Illumination Lighting Ceremony in the spirit of giving to help support the Mid-Ohio Foodbank as well. This event truly embodies the holiday spirit.


Short North Arts District Tree Lighting Celebration

November 20th at 5:00pm

The Arts District wouldn’t have a tree lighting celebration without live music, performing arts, seasonal cocktails and not one, but two twinkling trees. Join us in the urban district we proudly call home to experience the holiday spirit of the Arts District.

Franklin Park Conservatory

Merry and Bright Nights at the Franklin Park Conservatory

November 21st – January 3rd

Surround yourself with the spirit of the season at the Franklin Park Conservatory. Hundreds of vibrant poinsettias and seasonal foliage embody the holiday season with live entertainment throughout the exhibit. Bring the whole family for crafts and activities to deck the halls this season.

We hope you find time between ugly Christmas sweater parties and cookie exchanges to celebrate the season with us at one of these festive seasonal events.
