Old Town Holiday Shop & Stroll and Tree Lighting

Overview

There is no better place to experience the magic of the holiday season than Historic Old Town for the annual Old Town Holiday Stroll. Live entertainment will fill the streets in anticipation for the traditional lighting of the Old Town Christmas tree.

Be sure to take advantage of discounts and specials offered during this jolly event by local businesses, restaurants, and museums in the area. 

Sip hot chocolate and enjoy live entertainment in the plaza in anticipation for the annual lighting of Albuquerque's largest Christmas Tree. KOB 4 will be broadcasting as Weatherman Steve Stucker hosts, live from Plaza Don Luis, located on Romero Street.

The tradition holds a special meaning for the Aceves family. 2017 marked the tree lighting ceremony's silver anniversary, and the first since the passing of Henry Aceves, longtime Old Town business owner and the one who, along with his wife Karen, began the tree lighting community tradition.
