A holiday village featuring food vendors, a beer garden for adults, and a special Kids Corner take place in the parks that surround the historic monument, the nation’s first honoring George Washington.

What began as a quiet gathering of neighbors more than four decades ago has grown steadily over the years to become one of the metropolitan region’s favorite holiday events. In 2015, more than seven thousand people attended the event while tens of thousands more watched the event on television.

The event is produced by Downtown Partnership of Baltimore with support from The Baltimore Office of Promotion and The Arts and the Baltimore Department of Recreation and Parks.
