Creswell Winter Lights Parade!

The Creswell Chamber of Commerce Board and staff are excited to host the annual Creswell Winter Lights event on Saturday, December 10th. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be here with children’s activities, music in the street, a light parade, a vendor market, and hot cocoa and cookies in various locations downtown. 

A Vendor Market with both handmade goods and direct sales businesses will be open from 9am - 3pm. The light parade, music, and parade are from 5-7pm.

The event is organized by an all-volunteer nonprofit committee of Creswell citizens. We welcome individuals, floats, businesses, student groups, and nonprofits to enter the parade. A modest fee for entrants will support the event expenses; donations are welcomed.

It is the mission of the volunteer Creswell Chamber Event Committee to organize and present to the people of Creswell and the surrounding area an annual event that will capture the spirit of Creswell, connect and unify our community and bring a feeling of fun and excitement to participants and viewers alike.

People of varied and diverse belief systems are cordially invited and welcome to participate in the parade, so long as entrants:

  • participate in a warm, friendly, and positive spirit,

  • are non-divisive, and

  • contribute to goodwill, unity, and the building up of our wonderful community

Most of all… Let's Have Fun!


FEES: $10 for individual / non-profit and $25 for commercial entries. Deadline to enter is December 3, 2022, however space is limited and entries will likely fill much earlier.
