This event has become a beloved family tradition over the past decade, but it was not always called the Silverton Christmas Market. Last winter, the event had it's first year with it's new name, taking place on the Resort grounds. In 2020, the event was called Lights at the Oregon Garden Resort and prior to that, the event was held in The Oregon Garden’s Rediscovery Forest as Christmas in the Garden.
Since the Resort’s parent company, Moonstone Hotel Properties, no longer manages The Oregon Garden, the event now resides on the grounds of the Oregon Garden Resort. This has been a positive change for the event, bringing a longer and more intimate walking path, a one-way path to ease the flow of traffic and varied landscaping to make one million lights even more spectacular.
The Silverton Christmas Market aims to focus on its German heritage and gathers inspiration from authentic German Christmas Markets, with collectible mugs; traditional lebkuchen (gingerbread hearts) and gluhwein (mulled wine); artisan vendors; a booth selling imported handcrafted German nutcrackers, smokers and ornaments; and a light section dedicated to Krampus – the wicked German counterpart to St. Nicholas. There will be snowless tubing but no ice skating this year.
In addition, the Silverton Christmas Market will benefit nonprofit organizations in the local community through Tubing for Schools, donations and more.
Our event is designed for friends and family to linger, enjoy time together and experience the traditions that make this time of year so special. We hope you will join us to create magical holiday memories at this unique holiday event in the Willamette Valley!
