2023 Holiday Lighting Ceremony on Friday, November 24th

See the town square come to life! The Annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony will be held on Friday, November 24th, 2023 at Central Park in Fairfield. To kick off the illumination and subsequently the holiday season, the Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce organizes this festive tradition with the lights being turned on at 6:00pm.

Special thanks to our 2023 Holiday Lighting Ceremony Presenting Sponsor, Everybody's Whole Foods!!

The Fairfield High School Choir will set the mood by singing holiday music at 5:30pm. The Chamber Christmas Committee chooses one citizen, whom best exemplifies the holiday spirit, and presents them with the opportunity to throw the switch to turn on the lights for the season. This citizen will be announced at 5:55pm so the lights can be turned on at 6:00pm sharp. After arriving to town as the lights come on, Santa can be found in the Santa House listening to the children share their hopes for the holiday season. Get your picture taken with Santa and head on over to Santa's workshop, where you can decorate your very own ornament! This year, the wooden ornaments are handmade by the Fairfield High School SkillsUSA Club. There will also be horse drawn wagon rides around the square for everyone to enjoy! Free hot cocoa and cookies will be handed out at the Santa House. An evening not to be missed!
