Join in the Fun!

Stay open on Candlelight Shopping evenings or help out in other ways. Remember, you don't have to be "in town" to be part of this exciting hometown event!


As the holiday season approaches, we are once again preparing for Glocester's Annual Candlelight Shopping Festivities! This delightful celebration of the holidays will be held on the first four Thursday evenings in December 2021.

The Candlelight Shopping Committee plans to schedule a variety of events and performances designed to enhance shopping and dining, and bring people into our town to enjoy our "Yankee hospitality." All businesses will be encouraged to decorate for the season, the streets will be lighted with our new antique street lights, and the sounds of holiday music will add to the old-fashioned ambiance that folks have enjoyed through past decades! 

We plan to treat local and out-of-town shoppers to a thoroughly enjoyable old-fashioned holiday shopping, dining, and entertainment excursion. Help us do it!
