The Galena Holidaze Festival will be on Saturday, December 3, 2022, from 11 AM to 6 PM. The mission of the festival is to bring a new annual event to Galena supporting the downtown businesses, encouraging residents and visitors to attend the festival and Fire in the Sky, and to contribute funds to the Galena ARC, the sponsor of Holidaze.
This come and go, family-friendly event will feature traveling local artisans with holiday items and local food vendors, live music including Christmas caroling, kids’ activities, a Christmas wreath sale in partnership with the Downtown Business Association, and silent auction. A portion of proceeds will be donated to the Galena ARC. The event will work together with the mission of the Galena ARC which is partially to “develop community cooperation in programs and activities which further arts/crafts, sports, and recreation for all ages.”
