Peddler’s Village Will Glow with a Million Lights for the Holidays


Lahaska, PA–Peddler’s Village, a countryside shopping, dining, lodging, and family entertainment destination in the heart of historic Bucks County, PA, will celebrate the holiday season with a million lights on display in the Village, holiday shopping, a Holly Jolly Weekend featuring a parade led by Santa, breakfasts with Santa, a gingerbread house competition and display, and more. With its notable tradition of elaborate decorations and festivities, the 59-year-old attraction is one of Pennsylvania’s most popular holiday destinations.

Starting on the evening of November 19, the Village will be aglow with one million colorful lights. Santa will mark his first appearance this year at the Village on Friday, November 19 at 6:30 p.m., when he will be entertaining guests by the Gazebo and strolling through the Village. The holiday lights will be on display through January 12, 2022.

November 19 also marks the opening of the Gingerbread Competition and Display, which this year is sponsored by NJM Insurance and will be held in the spacious Red Barn on Street Road Green. The free event will include more than 70 creative entries and will be on view through January 8, 2022. (The display will be closed on Christmas Day.) From Friday, November 15 through Sunday, November 21, the Village will host a Merchants Open House, during which the 65 specialty shops and boutiques will welcome guests for gift-giving ideas and the opportunity to enjoy warm, personal service as part of their holiday shopping experience. More than 95% of the shops at Peddler’s Village are small businesses and/or locally owned. Because of this, Peddler’s Village is an ideal destination to celebrate Small Business Saturday, which occurs this year on November 27.

Guests can run, jog, or simply walk during the Holiday Hustle on Thursday, December 2.

Participation is limited to 1000 people; online registration is available.
