Our annual holiday “Grand Opening” is a long-standing tradition when our community comes together to
celebrate Buena Vista’s unique mountain lifestyle with a day bursting with fun, festivities, caroling and much more!

Take a “Sweet Stroll” through town as you shop & visit our local restaurants and stores,
gathering Chocolate Walk stamps, enjoying our artisan coffee shops & finding fun and unique gifts along the way.
Don’t miss the Ugly Sweater 5k & Family Fun Run, “cool off” at the Polar Plunge,
then head over to the BV Heritage Museum.

Join hundreds of hungry chili fans arriving at the museum to shop the array of artisan vendors,
snap a photo with Santa, visit Santa’s Favorite Workshop, sample all the chili you can eat, then cast your vote for the winning recipe.
As you are visiting around town enjoying the carolers passing by, be sure to stop in to the local bars for a mid-day libation,
and stroll over to the BV Library for the Local Author Fair.

As the day draws to a close, the Parade of Lights will begin on E Main near the BV Community Center,
ending at Railroad & E Main with Santa reciting ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas and lighting our Community Tree.
