Holiday Open House

You are invited to join Downtown merchants for hospitality and shopping. Meet your friends and neighbors and bask in the ambiance of the holiday season.

Held the first Friday in December, December 2, from 6 to 9 pm, the Holiday Open House begins with an appearance by Santa Claus, who flies into town to light the giant Christmas tree in Pennsylvania Park and greet children on the streets with a wave and wink! The tree lighting begins ceremony begins promptly at 6. New this year is the Downtown Social District – carry your adult beverage with you when you walk from store to store. Visit for more information.

This is the night when the streets close, and the merchants open their doors to offer warm holiday greetings and hospitality. The Petoskey High School Steel Drum Band will be here for its annual appearance.  Due to staffing shortage issues, you may find some of your favorite stores closed or offering a little bit different type of hospitality this year, but many will be open as usual and waiting to greet you.  Windows are decorated in holiday style, and the streets are alive with a seasonal glow. Come Downtown and enjoy the smiling faces and seasonal fun with your family this evening.

Enjoy yourselves, and while you are here, please respect the wishes of individual merchants who request mask-wearing and occupancy limits.
