The 16th Street Mall Holiday Festival is the Holiday shopping event of the year taking place on the historic 16th Street Mall in Downtown Denver.
This highly attended annual curated marketplace will feature an awesome selection of one of-a-kind seasonal items, high quality handcrafted goods, fabulous holiday gift ideas, delicious specialty foods, home décor, and unique holiday gifts. The 16th Street Mall is Denver’s most significant public space – it is one of our city’s most powerful economic engines thanks to its 200 street-level retailers and restaurants, 22,000 residents, and 130,000 employees; and claims international significance as one of the largest pedestrian and transit corridor of its kind in the world. This holiday shopping event is taking place on the center of the 16th Street Mall in the 3 block busiest section, in front of Downtown Denver’s Holiday attractions including floats from the Parade of Lights, a dazzlingly array of holiday lights and the a 100’ LED Christmas Tree, which is the largest installation of its kind in North America. The tree was created by ILMEX Illumination, a globally renowned decorative lighting production company from Spain that creates amazing effects using pixel-mapping technology. At the event there will be Christmas Carolers, Live entertainers, and appearances by Santa. The event is also taking place before and during the 9News Parade of Lights on December 4th, which is a huge holiday parade in Downtown Denver.
