If you’ve ever wanted to experience the charm and giddy anticipation of an old-fashioned Christmas, you must come to Historic Cedarburg. The entire Historic District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, will be twinkling with tiny white lights, festooned with holiday greenery and replete with extravagantly embellished shop windows all set in an atmosphere full of good cheer. Come spend a leisurely day with us. We promise you'll be enchanted by our beautiful downtown, where centuries-old limestone  buildings house enticing shops, art galleries, coffee houses, and cozy pubs and restaurants. Shopkeepers adorn their storefronts with artfully crafted, seasonal decorations, thousands of twinkling lights brighten wintry skies over our picturesque downtown Historic District, and our free-standing Santa's Workshop greets families warmly despite the weather!

Our series of Festive Friday Eves will begin on November 17 and run every Friday evening from 5-9 pm, through December 22, sponsored by the merchants of Cedar Creek Settlement with grants from Concordia University Wisconsin, Kapco Kids 2 Kids Christmas, Festivals of Cedarburg, Inc. & Cornerstone Community Bank.

A shopper's delight, Cedarburg offers everything from modern arts and accessories to nostalgic antiques and toys, to artful attire for the
