There’s no place like Colonial Williamsburg for the holidays.

Here you’ll find enduring traditions, charming decorations, and a season that still warms the heart. One visit and you’ll quickly see why our guests come from near and far to enjoy the festivities while making memories that last a lifetime.



Join us for the seasonal tradition of lighting the town with candles and cressets. Celebrate the holidays with special performances at these illuminations throughout the Historic Area.
