About Hometown Holiday

Hometown Holiday is all about celebrating what we love most at the end of the year: community! (And sometimes the weather!)

Last year included an amazing race, scavenger hunt, craft fair, Santa for the kids, the Parade of Lights, sleigh rides, bonfire, a screening of the Polar Express, and plenty of other smaller side activities. All events are free, or might require something like food or clothing donation. Stay tuned for planning, parade, vendor updates and more!

Hometown Holiday is headed by the Rifle Area Chamber of Commerce, check them out- riflechamber.com

Rifle celebrates the holidays in style with Hometown Holidays!  The annual event features a festive weekend that includes a parade, fireworks, performances from Symphony of the Valley at the Ute Theatre, screenings of The Polar Express at Brenden Theatres, and much more!
