Denver’s Most Iconic Block Announces Holiday Festivities


Larimer Square, Denver’s top dining, shopping and entertainment destination, will officially kick-off the holiday season on Small Business Saturday, November 30. To get the block ready for the holidays, the Denver Gay Men’s Chorus will be decorating with garland, wreaths and lights on Saturday, November 16 starting at 9 a.m., continuing their decades-long tradition of decking out the block for the holidays.

New this holiday season, Larimer Square will debut Miracle© on Larimer Street, a holiday-themed pop-up bar serving spirited cocktails in an over-the-top festive setting. Additionally, the Larimer Square Holiday Market, a new, experiential block-wide market, will bring more than 50 local makers, artisans and food and beverage purveyors to the block for five days and nights, paired with holiday sips and entertainment at a heated pop-up bar. Larimer Square also welcomes back Stetson this holiday season. The legendary American lifestyle company created a special holiday store on the square to sell hats, boots and western apparel over the holidays, through the annual National Western Stock Show in January. Celebrate the season on the square with treasured holiday traditions including visits with Santa starting on Saturday, November 30, live holiday music and a special Paws & Claus Day to capture holiday memories with your furry family members.
