Festive Fridays 2022
An event every week that begins at 5:30 pm on Friday, repeating until December 16, 2022
The Downtown Columbia Partnership and the Columbia Association are excited to bring their annual family-themed Festive Fridays back to the Downtown Columbia Lakefront in 2022. For two Fridays in December (December 9th and December 16), visit the Lakefront to enjoy music, activities, delicious snacks and drinks and great local entertainment.
This year, we are proud to support the incredible work of the Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center, whose mission is to serve those in need. When you join us for Festive Friday this year, please bring a donation of needed community pantry and shelter hygiene products to support their mission.
Firepits located throughout the plaza will keep visitors warm, and S’mores kits will be available for purchase to prepare over the open flame. Enjoy hot cider, hot chocolate and warm cinnamon rolls, along with fresh popcorn and cotton candy, all brought to you through generous support from Lakefront businesses The Collective, The 3rd, Cured 18th & 21st and Whole Foods.
Watch ice sculptures, capture a memory at the holiday-themed photobooth, listen to the live choral music and enjoy arts and activities at the craft tent.
No registration required, and entry is free, with snacks, drinks and S’mores kits available for purchase.
Now in our 8th year, Festive Fridays are a tradition of the Downtown Columbia holiday season.
