Oswego Christmas Walk

December 4 @ 4:00 pm - 8:30 pm

An Oswego Tradition, with your health and safety in mind…with free admission to all who attend!
The Oswego Christmas Walk will have plenty of cheer but will look different this year! We’re working hard to bring you a safe but joyous event. You can expect a festival of sights, sounds and smells featuring one-way foot traffic — a stroll down Main Street — through downtown Oswego with fewer crowd gatherings but all the same joy of the season.
​Following guidance from state and local health officials, we’ll be removing high touch-point activities, such as bounce houses, the train, faux ice rink and inflatables and spreading out attractions like reindeer, ice carving and, main stage performances to keep patrons at a safe distance. Wear your mask and your jingle bells and take part in an Oswego tradition.
There will be limited food and drinks being sold this year. Please plan to support the local restaurants with take-out on your way home. Consider supporting area not-for-profit organizations, some of whom will be selling hot cocoa or hot cider for $1.00/cup.
This year’s Emergency Vehicle Silent Light Parade has been moved to Saturday, December 5, starting at 6:00 PM. See www.oswegochristmaswalk.com for parade route.
