the backstory...

Before the pandemic, Ridgefield’s downtown businesses self-funded the popular Holiday Stroll. Due to COVID-related economic pressures and the need for social distancing, the Holiday Stroll is not possible this year.

You’ll be supporting local businesses when they need it the most, just by registering (for free) to attend the all-new Ridgefield Holiday Village. Thank you in advance!

Join us and support Ridgefield’s businesses this holiday season in a safe and spirited way!
