Santa's Arrival in Woodstock

A little before 6 p.m. on Chrismas Eve, a wagon of musical elves drew up at Woodstock's Village Green, pulled by a bright red tractor.

Next to arrive was a sleigh drawn by several energetic reindeer, one of whom had a twinkling red nose. But Santa was not in the sleigh. Where could he be?

After an anxious wait on the part of the large crowd gathered at the Green, Santa finally appeared on the rooftop above One Tinker Street in Woodstock. Welcoming cheers burst forth to greet him.

We hope that you're enjoying the holidays, whereever you are. Best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year. Like Santa, come visit us soon in Woodstock!

Experience Woodstock Hospitality

On Friday, December 3, from 5 to 9 p.m., Woodstock celebrated the beginning of its fabulous winter “season of light” with the 29th annual Open House. Festivities included a bonfire, hot cider, wine and cheese tastings, free treats, caroling, free concerts, Frosty the Snowman, face painting by Mrs. Claus, a free mini-shuttle from one end of town to the other, and much, much more. Woodstock’s many shops and galleries decorated their windows and opened their doors to welcome visitors from near and far. Happy holidays!
