Boise Christmas Events Calendar 2020

Are you looking to join your neighbors in the Treasure Valley for some fun Christmas Events? We've got all your events here in one place! We're highlighting Boise area Christmas Parades, Boise Christmas Tree Lightings, and other free events in Boise and the Treasure Valley for you to attend.

We'll be adding events as we find them or hear about them. To add your event, please email us: Not all events will make our list, because we do try to emphasize free events for families, and not necessarily feature every single convention, show, etc.


We know there is some uncertainty about events and gatherings, and there have already been changes and event cancellations. We'll do our best to keep this page updated, but ALWAYS check the official pages/social media channels of these events for the most up-to-date info.

Caldwell's Winter Wonderland Opening Weekend, 5 - 10 PM

120 S Kimball Ave, Caldwell ID 83605

Every year, the City of Caldwell Street Department decorates Indian Creek in downtown Caldwell with over a million lights!

Come join us to view the lights during opening weekend. Experience the holiday season every evening; visit Santa, go ice skating, eat your favorite treat, or start your holiday shopping. We have everything you need to kick off the holidays right here in downtown Caldwell!

Due to COIVD-19 there will be no creek lighting ceremony and the festival has been extended to three days. The experience will be the same for your and your family regardless if you come to walk through Winter Wonderland on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. The Winter Wonderland Lights, ice skating, food trucks, vendors, and entertainment will be the same every night. More Info
