A guide to holiday markets, where to see holiday lights + displays, and raise a glass at holiday-themed bars
With Thanksgiving officially over, let the holiday celebrations begin!
There are so many holiday markets, tree lightings and light displays, and holiday bars in DC that it can be hard to keep track of everything.
Luckily, we've done all the hard work for you and compiled a MEGA list of local markets to support area businesses and makers, spots for boozy holiday cocktails, and where to see holiday lights to make your season merry and bright.
For even more ways to get into the holiday spirit, stay tuned for our monthly Wanderlist of curated awesome things (holiday and non-holiday alike) that will be coming out in a few days.
Tis the season to shop local and shop small
It's the holiday season
And Santa Claus is coming round
The christmas snow is white on the ground
When old Santa gets into town. . .
Nothing gets me in the holiday spirit like shopping and eating. But fighting traffic and spending hours wandering from store to store in search of the perfect gift, only to go home virtually empty-handed without anyone crossed off your list can turn anyone into a Scrooge. Sure, there’s online shopping, but scrolling through websites doesn’t exactly put you in the holiday spirit.
This year, ditch your normal shopping routine, and visit one of DC’s holiday markets with one-of-a-kind items, entertainment, and tasty goodies to help fuel your day of browsing.
Let's go shopping!
Look up, down, and all around. Adventures can be found everywhere -- if you're curious enough to look. k for it
