There is no better way to get into the holiday spirit than in the quaint, New England-style village of Granville. This year marks the 33rd year that the Village of Granville has entertained thousands of visitors and residents at the Christmas Candlelight Walking Tour.
Granville’s Christmas Candlelight Walking Tour lights up the town the first Saturday of each December, capturing the essence of an old-fashioned Christmas. A festive mood is created at this holiday event as visitors discover the spirit of the season amidst the glow of twinkling Christmas lights and luminaries, the sounds of carolers and musicians, and the happy laughter of children as they sit on Santa’s knee.
Stroll along the streets lined with live Christmas trees aglow with sparkling lights and hundreds of luminaries. Find special gifts at unique shops, and dine in a variety of restaurants. Enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride, holiday music at area churches, or visit our museums and businesses that host a multitude of special events and activities.
Timed events that have become family favorites occur at locations around town, such as children’s events at the Village Hall; Santa and Mrs. Clause at the Robbins Hunter Museum; Christmas Train exhibits at the library; theatre and music at Denison University; and musical attractions at local businesses.
This annual event is chaired by the Granville Area Chamber of Commerce and is free to the public.
