2021 Small Town Holidays

Celebrate community and tradition.

Lake Chelan will kick off a new annual event this holiday with Small Town Holidays in the Lake Chelan Wine Valley November 25 – December 31, 2021.

Escape to our charming valley and reconnect with family and create long lasting holiday memories. The Lake Chelan Valley will be blanketed in magical holiday lights, fireworks every weekend, as well as local boutiques, wineries and restaurants dressed up for the holidays.

Whether you are visiting for the first time, consider Lake Chelan your second home or are lucky enough to live here year round – the holidays feel a little more magical in Lake Chelan.

With the current statewide mandate by the Governor’s office, this year’s events and activities are all outside and developed so you can enjoy the holidays in a safe manner.

We encourage all guests to wear masks so everyone feels safe and can enjoy their time with us.

Small Business Saturday

Saturday November 21, 2020

Small Business Saturday is an annual holiday shopping tradition — just one part of the larger Shop Local Movement that supports small businesses every day and everywhere. Because shopping at a family-owned framing spot or buying a handmade ring from your favorite online small business helps to promote more
vibrant communities.

Shop Local

Every Day.

Swing into downtown Chelan or Manson and find that uniquely curated gift in one of our shops; enjoy a nice dinner out with your family in one of the incredible restaurants that surround our lake; or stop by one of our wineries to take in the views and enjoy an award-winning glass of wine. There is nothing like a local experience in our charming small town. Join us in focusing on LOCAL shopping, dining, sipping and more this holiday season!
