Hamilton, NY is filled with traditional, festive activities for everyone. Embrace the holiday spirit with family and friends as you create new cherished memories. Events begin in November and continue throughout December with wagon rides, visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus, shopping, story times, dining, concerts, movies, crafts, and more.

Hamilton is the perfect place to purchase a unique gift for your family and friends. All of the shops are bursting with one-of-a-kind items for everyone. Enjoy the pleasant stroll and friendly service (more festive than the mall), then complete your evening with a warm toddy or a delicious meal at any of the local pubs.

The traditional Night of Lights on the Hamilton Village Green is Friday, December 6th from 5:30pm – 7pm. Come ring in the holidays in Hamilton with the annual Village Tree Lighting, visit with Santa & his elves, free horse drawn wagon rides, free hot chocolate & cookies, s’mores, and music by local students from Hamilton Central School and Colgate!
