Stunning Christmas light displays, good food, time well spent with family and friends, and a little bit of holiday magic are waiting for you at the Silverton Christmas Market in Silverton Oregon. If you're not able to make it to the North Pole this year, this is the next best option; the perfect way to kick off the 2022 holiday season with your family. To say we're excited is an understatement! This year promises to be better than ever before.
The 2022 Silverton Christmas Market At The Oregon Garden Resort
This gorgeous annual Christmas light display and holiday market officially kicks off on November 25th, 2022, and runs until December 31, 2022. (Closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.) Each night the event runs from 5-9 pm.
Formerly known as Christmas In The Garden, this annual holiday spectacular is held at the Oregon Garden resort
Recognized in the 2022 Best of the Willamette Valley Awards as Silver for Best Charity Event, this annual event aims to support the community of Silverton through partnerships with local non-profits and discounted admission for Silverton residents to experience the magic. It has become a beloved family tradition over the past decade.
The activities here are endless with all kinds of things to keep both you and your littles happy and busy.
The immersive lighted path is loaded with more than a million Christmas lights.
The Silverton Christmas Market has opportunities to take photos with Santa or Frosty, and features live music, local brews in the Biergarten, international food and drink, as well as handmade goods at the authentic German Christmas market. Children will delight in zipping down the snowless tubing hill and walking down the gorgeously festive lighted paths.
Getting something delicious from the sweets booth and meandering around with a steaming cup of hot chocolate is an absolute must. Adults will love the Biergarten and "spiked" beverages like Fireball Cider. My personal favorite is the warm, mulled Gluhwein. German foods take the spotlight here with fare ranging from schnitzel and yummy sauerkraut-topped hot dogs.
Take the kids for some snowless tubing fun after taking traditional pictures with Santa or Frosty.
Did you know your four-legged friends are more than welcome to enjoy the festivities as well? Bring your well-behaved pooches and adventurous felines (with leashes for everybody, please).
Each evening features live music and carolers roaming the gardens. Take it all in as you shop for handmade gifts and imported German goods at the vendor booths.
