Christmas On Broadway
Said the Vail Daily: “Christmas on Broadway is so charming that if Norman Rockwell was still alive he’d paint it.” Eagle’s Christmas on Broadway transforms downtown Eagle into a Christmas village on the first Saturday of December. It was started more than two decades ago, after a group gathered for lunch at an Eagle Chamber of Commerce meeting and came up with the idea for a Christmas celebration in downtown Eagle… And it’s still going strong a quarter century later!
The Christmas spirit fills the air, inspired by WassailFest that runs from Thursday through Saturday. That afternoon the traditional parade down Broadway features close to 40 participating groups or floats. The creative design of the floats and the decorated vehicles amazes us as they get better each year. Santa Claus arrives in a 1904 carriage drawn by two Percheron horses (thanks to Ed Oyler); what a breathtaking sight!
The Eagle Chamber of Commerce has coordinated Christmas on Broadway for more than a quarter of a century. We have more activities than ever, including a Santa’s Workshop, a Live Nativity, a blazing bonfire and live music in the Town Park following the parade.
We are especially grateful to the event sponsors and our partners at the Town of Eagle who made the event possible.
Volunteers are the backbone of this event and a special ‘thank you’ goes to the coordinating committee, parade volunteers and participants, and first responders for their assistance in creating this memorable event.
The Christmas spirit is alive and well in Eagle; come experience it in December and enjoy Eagle throughout the following year!
