Hummelstown Holiday Happenings 2023

Updated: Nov 28, 2023

It’s that time of year again! Hummelstown Holiday Happenings 2023 will be held on Sunday, December 3, 2023, from 1–5 p.m. and is sponsored by the Hummelstown Business and Professional Association.

Hummelstown will be bustling with many holiday activities. Local businesses and organizations will be hosting festive activities such as cookie decorating, making ornaments and crafts, photo stations, refreshment stations, and so much more! This is a great way to put everyone in the holiday spirit! DJ Scott Mateer will be providing music.

Don’t miss your chance to visit Santa on the Square and share your lists with him. Santa’s reindeer are all resting up for their long flight, but do not worry; the Hummelstown Fire Company will be giving Santa a ride to the Square on one of their fire trucks! Even though it’s his busiest time of year, he always makes time to stop by Hummelstown Holiday Happenings.

From 2 to 4 PM, the Hershey Trolley Works will be providing free transportation around town to the different Trolley stops, thanks to our wonderful sponsors.

To end a magical day, join us on the Square at 5:30 PM for the annual Tree Lighting sponsored by the Hummelstown Community Foundation. Santa and Miss Hummelstown will light the tree while the Hummelstown Community Singers lead the caroling.

We hope everyone has an amazing day full of fun, friendship, and holiday spirit!
