Attend These Park City Christmas Events

Start the Season With the Tree-Lighting Ceremony

For locals, the Christmas season begins with Park City Mountain Resort’s tree-lighting ceremony. You and your family can enjoy hot cocoa and holiday crafts before watching the resort flip the switch and illuminate their gorgeous tree. After, Santa will pay a visit to all the boys and girls. Finally, the lights on the tree are outshone only by the stunning fireworks display that caps off the night. 

Start the Season (Again) at the Electric Parade

If you don’t want to attend the tree-lighting ceremony, then head to Main Street in downtown Park City for the Electric Parade. We don’t just settle for an average parade with the same boring floats. Instead, locals decorate their vehicles with elaborate Christmas displays and cruise through historic Park City. It’s like watching a light showcase on wheels! 

Watch Santa Arrive Park City-Style

In Park City, Old Saint Nick ditches his reindeer and makes an even better entrance during the Santa Comes Down the Town Lift event. The event is as described — every year, Kris Kringle rides the Town Lift in a sleigh that’s decorated with twinkling lights. 


If you can only attend one Christmas event in Park City, Snowfest is the one to pick! Held at the Park City Mountain Resort, this 16-day winter extravaganza features live music and entertainment, trivia hours, and meet and greets with the famous avalanche dogs! Best of all, the events are all included in your pass to Park City Mountain Resort, so you won’t have to pay extra for these fun festivities. When you and your family attend Snowfest, you’re making the most out of your winter vacation to Park City.

Don’t Miss the Fun at Deer Valley Resort

It isn’t only Park City Mountain that hosts holiday-themed parties. Join residents and visitors at the Deer Valley Resort’s Torchlight Parade, which typically takes place after the holidays. Watch as skiers, lit only by red lanterns, fly down the mountain. You’ll enjoy it from your cozy view from the deck of the Snow Park Lodge.
