It's hard to describe the magic of Candlelight Christmas. We'd like you to experience it! The Village is decorated like a Currier & Ives card, and you'll feel like you've taken a step back in time when you join us for this enchanting event.

You'll enjoy a visit with Father Christmas. In the quiet of the Village the live Nativity scene is sure to touch the hearts of young and old alike. The Heritage Village Carolers return each year for an encore presentation, providing an inspiring backdrop to the glitter of lights, the glow of warm fires and the smells of Christmas.

Take home a little bit of Christmas by joining in the fun of making crafts and homemade gifts in one of the decorated historic homes or pioneer cabins. And you can save all your holiday shopping for your visit to the Park. The Gift Shop at the Visitors Center and the ZCMI Mercantile have Salt Lake's best selection of unique, all-occasion gifts for everyone on your list! And don't forget to warm up with a hot soup meal at the Huntsman Hotel complete with a sweet treat for those who have been good this year!

Observe a Christmas of over a Century ago - quieter, simpler, fun for all. Slow down, take a stroll through streets ringing with music and make Candlelight Christmas part of your cherished family traditions. Bundle up and join us for an event you'll be talking about for years to come! Now that's a family memory!
