Bigger, brighter – More than a million lights on holiday displays

The annual Silverton Christmas Market is quickly approaching and tickets are on sale now. 

Returning this holiday season with more lights (over a million), a longer walking path and a larger vendor market. The Oregon Garden Resort, hosts the Silverton Christmas Market which starts Friday, Nov. 25 and runs through Jan. 1 (closed Dec. 24 and 25).

“It’s truly magical to watch families make holiday memories,” said Alexis Federico, public events manager for the Oregon Garden Resort. 

“We have more lights and larger light displays than ever before – lots of light tunnels and themed areas, along an even longer walking path. 

“The event is only a few weeks away, so we encourage everyone to buy their tickets and book their overnight stays, since they’re selling quickly!”

The event offers a magical experience for all ages. Visitors can walk through an immersive path packed with more than a million lights, cruise down the snowless tubing hill presented by Power Kia, take a picture with Santa or Frosty, enjoy live music and a brew in the Biergarten presented by Western Beverage, taste international cuisine and drink and shop for handmade gifts and imported German goods at an authentic outdoor German market. 

The event gathers inspiration from German Christmas Markets, featuring collectible mugs; traditional lebkuchen (gingerbread hearts) and gluhwein (mulled wine); a booth selling imported, handcrafted German nutcrackers, smokers and ornaments; and a light section dedicated to Krampus – the wicked German counterpart to St. Nicholas.
