Downtown Downers Grove

Kick-off the season with fun for the whole family while supporting small businesses.

On Friday, November 25th, enjoy the sounds of the Olde Town Carolers from 3:00-4:00pm. Join us for the Tree Lighting Ceremony at 4:30 pm, which is sponsored by the Village of Downers Grove.  Santa will arrive with the assistance of the Downers Grove Fire Department.  Mayor Bob Barnett and Santa will count down and bring a sparkle to the tree, which is decorated with over 1,000 ornaments created by the children of Downers Grove!  After the ceremony, continue visiting your favorite boutiques and restaurants and vote for your favorite Gingerbread House at participating businesses.

Saturday, November 26th, Downtown Downers Grove merchants will help you cross items off your Christmas list with one-of-a-kind gifts on Small Business Saturday. Children can participate in the Gingerbread Man Hunt and earn a prize. 

     Sunday, November 27th, bring the whole family for continued holiday fun. While you shop, take a break and enjoy a complimentary Carriage Ride between 1:00-4:00pm.  Keep your ears open for the sounds of Holiday Caroling from strolling carolers throughout the afternoon.

Enjoy complimentary visits with Santa in his Gingerbread House (at the corner of Main and Curtiss) all season every Saturday and Sunday Nov. 26-Dec.18 from 1:00-4:00pm.
