Join the Town of Oakland for A Great Small Town Christmas, December 2nd and 3rd, 2022. We have many free and family-friendly activities in downtown Oakland while you work on your Christmas shopping with handcrafted and curated gifts.
A Great Small Town Christmas will kick off with a Light Up Night on Friday, December 2nd at the Oakland B&O Museum. The event will start with a Walking Holiday Light Parade, led by Santa Claus starting at the Town Parking Lot at 5:30pm. All are invited to participate in the walking parade as we make our way to the B&O Museum for the official tree lighting. Come out and join us for carols by the Garrett County Choral Society, free cookies and cocoa from the Order of the Eastern Star, free sleigh rides, and a special treat from Santa himself! Light Up Night is sponsored by Garrett Regional Medical Center.
On Saturday, December 4th the fun continues with Soup N’ Santa from 11am to 2pm! There will be multiple nonprofits handing out free soup (donations are appreciated), the chance to visit with Santa, free sleigh rides, live music, and local shopping.
And while you're shopping, don't forget to look for the elf! The Lucky Elf promotion in downtown Oakland continues through Monday, December 19th. For every $25 spent in participating Oakland stores you visit, you receive a chance to win a variety of local gifts.
