The Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce and Fire Department have been “illuminating” the famous, giant star on top of Castle Rock for 85 years and this annual event is the most anticipated holiday landmark in all of Douglas County each November.
Castle Rock Star Lighting
Be there to see the Star high atop the Castle ROCK turn blue!
The Castle Rock “Lighting of the Star” has been a community event shared by residents dating back to 1936. The same spirit of volunteerism, generosity and love of tradition exists today as Castle Rock businesses and residents prepare to celebrate Starlighting downtown on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. The 2021 Castle Rock Starlighting is Saturday, Nov. 20 from 2 PM to 7 PM in Downtown Castle Rock at Historic Wilcox Square.
As one of Castle Rock Chamber’s signature events, this year’s Starlighting celebration will again include: hot chocolate, nonprofit booths, strolling entertainers, live entertainment and of course Santa will be present for photos and visits. Don’t forget to enjoy the Rink at the Rock, an outdoor ice skating rink in downtown Castle Rock as well. Non-profit groups are invited to participate in this well-respected community event to spread the word about their organization. Click below to register, space is limited.
