Ready or not, it’s time to get into the holiday spirit! Ring in the season in Downtown Columbus with three days of shopping, dining, discounts and prizes at the Downtown Christmas Open House!
The Christmas Open House will be held on Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Shop in beautiful downtown Columbus as 19 businesses showcase holiday items and specials to kick off the Christmas season.
Two lucky shoppers will have the opportunity to win grand door prizes totaling over $1,100.00, generously donated by downtown merchants. The winners will be announced on Nov. 9.
“The holidays bring a special magic to the air and the Christmas Open House is the first sign that the season has begun”, said Barbara Bigelow, executive director for Main Street Columbus. “The annual Christmas Open House is an exciting and unique opportunity for the many downtown merchants to showcase their products, including great food, clothing, gifts, jewelry, books, art and more! It is also a time when our community can show its support for small, local businesses, which in turn helps to boost our local economy.”
“Downtown shops will be festively decorated and you will find those special one-of-a-kind gifts for everyone on your holiday list,” she added. “Also, be sure to check out our downtown restaurants for lunch or dinner. You certainly don’t want to miss this year’s Christmas Open House or any of our other downtown holiday activities. The Open House is sponsored by the City of Columbus and Cumulus Broadcasting.”
The Downtown Open House is followed by the 2022 Holiday Farmers’ Market on Nov. 19, Small Business Saturday on Nov. 26, the Lighting of the Christmas Tree on Nov. 28, Wassail Fest on Dec. 2, the Columbus Christmas Parade on Dec. 4 and Moonlight Madness on Dec. 17. And, don’t forget pictures with Santa and Miz Claus during Wassail Fest, and on Dec. 3 and 17.
