Lift Your Spirits This Holiday Season

Make your days merry and bright with festive Lehigh Valley events and special offers. From charming carriage rides and historic downtown shopping experiences, to holiday performances, caroling and more – Lehigh Valley sets the stage for a magical experience.

Experience the magic of the Christmas City. Bethlehem, PA boasts one of the top-ranked holiday markets in the world, now celebrating its 25th season. Christkindlmarkt (weekends, November 17 through December 23) offers visitors the chance to browse wares from more than 100 vendors while enjoying musical performances, watching glass blowing demonstrations, and more.

But that’s not the only shopping outlet you’ll find. Along Main Street, browse Christmas City Village (weekends, November 17 through December 23), an authentic German Weihnachtsmarkt, complete with charming wooden huts lining the streets offering unique holiday gifts for all. Or, browse the Moravian Book Shop, the oldest continuously operating bookstore in the country.

Take a horse-drawn carriage ride for a unique way to take in the scenery. You might even spot a strolling trombone choir, pulling inspiration from Moravian heritage, playing festive tunes. Across Lehigh Valley, local theatres showcase delightful performances ranging from classic Nutcrackers to unique productions that you can only see here. If lights are a must-see for you and your family, you’ll find no shortage of brilliant displays showcasing tens of thousands of twinkling lights.

And of course, share the fun! Tag your photos using #LiftYourSpiritsDLV for a chance to win prizes to local attractions. Check out the photos tagged for a peek at Lehigh Valley in its full festive splendor.
