A Small Town Saugatuck Christmas

From mid-November through the New Year, Saugatuck sparkles with the spirit of an old-fashioned Christmas. You can’t help but catch the joy of the season. Snowflakes twinkle throughout downtown. The streets bustle as buggy rides transport shoppers. Dickens’ Christmas Carol players entertain. Festivity is in the air as all of our unique shops brim with artisan-crafted gifts. Fireworks over Lake Kalamazoo greet the New Year at midnight.
