Castle Rock Starlighting 2020

Season of The Star Downtown Castle Rock CO | The Meadows

The Tradition Continues! Kick-off the Holidays with the 2020 Starlighting

As we all know, one of the most cherished traditions in Castle Rock is the annual Starlighting. Every year we all look forward to kicking off the holiday season with this time-honored tradition downtown. Like most things, our holiday tradition will be a bit different this year. Don’t worry. The town is still bringing in the holiday cheer! This year, it’s all happening on Saturday, November 21, from 2-6 pm.

Celebrate in Three Locations!

Because it’s 2020 and COVID is still of concern, the holiday celebration needs to be different. Instead of the traditional downtown celebration, you can celebrate at three spots throughout the town or virtually if you prefer. Meadows residents can stop by the hospital to catch the Starlighting and fireworks show. You can also head to Philip S Miller Park Amphitheatre or the Douglas County Fairgrounds. Because of gathering restrictions, you must pre-register so that organizers can keep count of how many people will attend. Hurry and get your spot! Registration opens November 4.

Entertainment, Food, and More 

Each location will feature rolling entertainment, food trucks, hot chocolate, and of course, the main event, the Castle Rock Starlighting ceremony, will take place at 5 pm with the lighting of the star at 5:30 pm followed by fireworks from the top of the rock. 

Have a Watch Party! 

If you can’t make it to one of the three locations, you can still jump in on the holiday celebration and virtually watch the celebration. You can pick up a Startlighting kit on November 11 from the Chamber of Commerce. The kit comes with an ornament, mugs, hot chocolate, and candles.

It’s been a crazy year, let’s hope the holidays bring a little peace and happiness. The tradition of the Starlighting is the perfect way to kick off your holiday season, and it’s a great reminder of what a wonderful town we live in. Learn more about this year’s Startlighting. Don’t miss the celebration on Saturday, November 21, from 2-6 pm.
