Eureka Springs Christmas Parade 2021

Experience the fun and magic of Christmas in the Ozarks with a visit to Eureka Springs this holiday season! Our little mountain town really kicks out the jams each year with a variety of a festive events. Concerts, holiday light displays, shopping opportunities, and don’t forget the annual Eureka Springs Christmas Parade!

There’s always a celebration of some kind in Eureka Springs, no matter the time of year. Once the holidays come rolling back around, however, look out! The fun starts right after Halloween and keeps going strong to New Year’s Day. Just about everyone gets into the spirit, too, decorating town with colorful lights, sparkling tinsel, and happy, seasonal song.

Of course, we’re not quite out of the pandemic woods yet. Consequently, the Eureka Springs holiday schedule isn’t as chubby with events as it can be. There’s no Eureka Springs Tour of Homes this year, for example, no Night of 1000 Santas.

Despite that, there’s still plenty of holiday things and more to do and see. Things like the Eureka Springs Christmas Parade of Lights, for example. There’s also lots of great shopping and dining and, let’s face it, lots of Eureka Springs, which is why you came here in the first place.
