Memories, magic and merriment are a big part of the holidays. Make the season truly shine and join the Town to celebrate the Season of the Star.

The holidays in Castle Rock start with Starlighting and continue through the New Year. The Season of the Star event series helps celebrate the warmth of our community. Start a new tradition, take in the holiday lights Downtown and enjoy everything the season has to offer in Castle Rock. More information is available at
