On Friday, December 6th, Casa de Campo and Altos de Chavón invite you to celebrate the official start of the holiday season with the first appearance of Santa Claus, Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and concert at the Altos de Chavón main plaza! 

What better way to celebrate the start of the magical holiday season than on the cobbled streets of Altos de Chavón among fellow Casa de Campo villa owners, residents, and special guests? Join us for a night filled with magic and happiness for all the family! Lights adorn the St. Stanislaus Church from rooftop to bell tower, and down to the cobblestone path. Reds, greens, purples, and blues make their way through the radiant night to alight your youthful energy and holiday cheer. 

That same day, starting at 6:00 pm, little ones will be able to visit Santa’s new house located next to the Regional Museum of Archeology! To enter they will receive a Magic Pass when they donate a new toy or cash to benefit the kids of the Hogar del Niño and Fundación MIR. Once inside Santa’s house, they can personally bring in their letters and talk to Santa about what they want for Christmas. It’s a wonderful way to teach our kids the importance of giving to those who need it the most. We hope that you’ve all been good this year!

At 7:30 pm the traditional Christmas Lighting Ceremony begins by lighting the main Christmas tree in the Plaza, marking the start of this joy-filled holiday in Casa de Campo. Following the display of lights, a Christmas concert with the Juan Pablo Duarte symphonic orchestra, directed by Prof. José Luis Ureña, will take place with traditional Christmas carols. This, mind you, is only the beginning of all the fun this season! With a variety of holiday events throughout this month, there is definitely something for everyone – find this year’s complete calendar of activities here!

Mark your calendars for December 6th to be witness to Chavón’s splendor and setting as the stage for a merry wonderland sure to captivate all. Catch last year’s unveiling here.
