Our Signature

Holiday Events Presented by Alpine Bank

  • Multiple Events every Year

Downtown Steamboat is the perfect backdrop for the Holiday season.

Light Up the

  • November 24, 2023 on the Courthouse lawn. This event is sponsored by Aspen SavATree.

The kick off for the holidays is the Friday after Thanksgiving. Join us on the Courthouse lawn from 6-6:30pm. Don’t be late, because this is the shortest event of the year! Have some Cocoa and and a cookie and help us count down from 10 to light the lights. Santa is on hand for the kids to visit and the local fire department swings by to drop hundreds of ping pong balls with specials on them for all to find. Not an easy feat, the balls are white and so is the snow, and did we mention it’s dark until we light the lights? We wrap things up by 6:30 so you can still make your dinner reservation. A BIG “Thank You” to Steamboat Lightscapes for their sponsorship of this event. Steamboat Lightscapes donates the lighting of a tree on the Courthouse lawn and several trees on Liconln Avenue every year.
