Make a day of it! Enjoy lunch at local restaurants, grab a hot cocoa, and start your holiday shopping at Cherry Creek North’s 260+ retail shops.

“We welcome the Denver community and visitors to soak up the spirit of the holidays by visiting Fillmore Plaza, one of our city’s premier outdoor event spaces, on December 10,” said Julie Underdahl, president and CEO of Cherry Creek North Business Improvement District. “This inaugural, free event captures the Colorado spirit of experiencing winter through outdoor fun.”

In addition to the festive fun on Fillmore Plaza, art galleries, restaurants, fashion boutiques, and spas and salons will offer discounts and promotions on December 10. View the Cherry Creek North online directory, which shows the diversity of the 260 retailers in the district that extends 16 blocks from 1st Avenue to 3rd Avenue, and from University Boulevard to Steele Street.

Other confirmed events and promotions during the fest are listed here.

Shop, eat, stroll, socialize and spread the joy of the holidays in one of Denver’s most walkable and accessible shopping districts. Visitors can plan an entire winter Saturday outdoors or cozy up in one of the many unique retailers, restaurants and spas in the area.  While visitors are out and about, look for Santa’s helpers handing out fun surprises or get caught up with a group of carolers.

The holidays are a busy time; it’s easy to park or valet once, stop at Fillmore Plaza, and walk the 16 blocks to everything Cherry Creek North has to offer. Many public parking garage options include $5 flat rates on weekends and evenings or valet opportunities at numerous locations throughout the area.

The Cherry Creek North Business Improvement District (BID) is a public organization primarily funded by private commercial tax payers. The BID’s mission is to actively plan, manage and promote Cherry Creek North as a premier destination for shopping, dining, living, working and visiting.

The BID was established in 1989 as the first business improvement district in the state of Colorado. The boundaries extend 16-blocks from 1st Avenue to 3rd Avenue, and from University to Steele Street.
