Christmas Lighting of the Square

Please be aware that all 2021 event dates are tentative at this point. We may be forced to cancel events due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Decisions to cancel events are out of our control – they are determined by the City of Chardon, who receives mandates from the Geauga County Board of Health and the State of Ohio. We will make every effort to reschedule events at a later date if possible, but this cannot be guaranteed.

Gazebo with Christmas tree and lights and Free Harmony singing

Join us as we light up the square for Christmas! Along with the colorful lights, we’ll have live music and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus!

The Chardon Area Chamber of Commerce will be serving hot cider courtesy of Sage’s Apples and assorted cookies, compliments of Chardon Healthcare Center. Look for the cauldron with the warm fire!
