December 1st – 31st

Welcome to the 2020 Village Lights

Visit the historic streets of German Village to discover a world of lights and holiday magic. Village Lights is a long-standing holiday-kickoff experience in German Village. Normally, the first Sunday in December, this year it will be month-long to accommodate the unique circumstances.


Village Lights House Competition


In light of everything going on this year, we thought it would be super fun to have a house decorating competition in the Village. The judging will take place in two different ways. First, the German Village Garten Club has graciously decided to help with judging over a three day period.  Secondly, there will be a community judging aspect which will account for the other half of the vote. Community judging will be an ongoing process and the German Village Garten Club will start their judging on Dec. 15.

German Village Passport 



The 2020 German Village passport is a way to help you visit more businesses throughout the Village. On the map below is a list of businesses in the Village who are particpating. As more businesses join the passport we will be updating the map to reflect their location, potential holiday deals, and COVID protocols. If you complete the passport, please send us a photo on social media for a prize. Have a happy holiday and we hope you enjoy visiting our businesses.

 Can you find Santa?

Instead of having Santa down for just one day, we are going to have Santa in the village throughout the month. He will be driving around in a golf cart. If you spot him, please get a picture of him for social media. Please do not get a picture with Santa, he is practicing social distancing.
