Welcome to Olde Fashioned Christmas 2020. The whole town will be decorating and planning for an experience that will take you out of the hustle and bustle to enjoy holiday magic with all the sights, sounds, tastes and easy shopping. Visitors will find holiday shopping a pleasure with the combination of craft vendor booths and the unique and appealing shops in Palisade. Plan on spending the weekend with us shopping, sampling soups, singing carols, sharing a carriage ride, marveling at Gingerbread Creations, taking a walk thru history, spreading good cheer, and savoring the flavor of Palisade! Shop Local will be in full gear – help support our local community. Craft vendors will be at the Downtown Marketplace 11am-4pm on Saturday. On your way out of town be sure to stop by the Craft Show at PHS to raise money for the Orchestra.

It all begins on Friday evening, December 4th  at about 5 pm with caroling by the Taylor Elementary Carolers as they march up Main Street to the Town Plaza to light the town tree. Warm up with hot cocoa and coffee on the plaza or purchase a cup of soup from Altrusa’s Cup of Warmth at the 13 Brix Cider Bistro. The Parade of Lights will follow at 5:30 pm with floats, bands, horses, fire trucks, buggies, and of course Santa!

Gingerbread Contest will return in 2021!

Be sure to come back on Saturday morning. The Festivities are from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm December 5th. DON’T FORGET TO STOP BY AND SAMPLE AND JUDGE YOUR FAVORITE SOUP @ the SOUP CHALLENGE between 12 pm and 2 pm. Music at the Methodist Church and at the Seventh Day Adventist Church next door will entertain and delight. The Nativity Set Collection is on display at the Seventh Day Adventist Church.  This year the Soup Challenge will be located at the downtown Plaza.
