The more, the merrier.

Join us on the block this holiday season for shopping, feasting, and seasonal celebrations.


With the holiday season just a few weeks away, we will officially kick-off the holidays on Small Business Saturday, November 24, hosting a series of festive, seasonal events on the square. Come down to the block to get in the holiday spirit early this season as we debut our beautiful holiday décor and garland, the weekend of November 17, when the Denver Gay Men’s Chorus honors their 30-year tradition of decorating the square for the holidays. From great holiday shopping, Santa on the Square each weekend starting on Black Friday (November 23), to the annual Yuletide Window Walk showcasing beautiful window installations created by local artists, to live holiday music and our Paws & Claus Day to capture holiday photos with your pet, Larimer Square is the place to celebrate the magic of the holiday season. Check out the full event schedule and details below.
