Christmas Walk


2019 Information available by calling the Chamber Office 309-944-2686 or contact us through the website:


Geneseo's Annual Christmas Walk is held every year on the second Saturday in December. The event kicks off with its popular Geneseo Jingle Run at 8:30 a.m. This 5k event includes a commemorative gift with pre-registration.

Everyone will enjoy shopping all day throughout Geneseo, finding just the right gift for everyone on your list.  Children’s activities fill the afternoon with special crafts, face painting, writing letters to Santa, and much more. Take a load off at one of our local restaurants or breweries. Join us at Central Theater for a “White Christmas” sing-along. As the sun goes down the night heats up with the Walk’s ever-growing lighted parade at 5 p.m. People line the streets as music and twinkling lights fill the evening air. Numerous floats, marching musicians, and animals parade southward down State Street through the historic downtown district. The parade ends with the lighting of Geneseo's Christmas Tree, which is led by the mayor and Santa Claus! After the parade and tree lighting, visitors can turn their gaze to the traditional living windows that grace Geneseo's downtown storefronts! Both living and still scenes will celebrate the season.
