Lighting of the Square

  • Historic Woodstock Square Woodstock, IL (map)

Come out to the beautiful, historic Square on the Friday after Thanksgiving when Christmas officially comes to Woodstock as a flip of the switch illuminates tens of thousands of lights on the Park trees and the Square buildings.  While the lighting itself takes place at 7:00PM in the Park-in-the-Square, there are many wonderful holiday activities planned, including holiday carolers, street musicians, holiday sweets and favors, and special goodies and displays in the Square shops and restaurants.  Enjoy caroling too, plus Santa and Mrs. Claus will be available in their Square home that evening to greet children and even pose for pictures.  Learn More
