Unwrap the Magic

Celebrate the season with festive events, shopping, and giving at The District at Green Valley Ranch

The holiday season is upon us, and The District at Green Valley Ranch is spreading joy and festive cheer in the heart of Henderson. As a premier mixed-use metropolitan shopping, dining, and lifestyle center, The District has become a beloved gathering place that exudes urban sophistication. This year, they offer an array of holiday events and activities to make the season brighter and more meaningful than ever before.

A Magical Start to the Season: The Tree Lighting Ceremony

The District kicked off the season in style with a Tree Lighting Ceremony in November. The event included snowfall at the top of every hour to get everyone into the holiday spirit. Attendees had the chance to meet the Sugarplum Fairy and the Nutcracker, enjoy the enchanting melodies of an electric string trio, and cozy up for a complimentary showing of "The Polar Express" at The Green. Attendees were encouraged to bring a gift for The District’s toy drive benefiting St. Jude's Ranch for Children.

Santa Claus has Arrived at The District

Through December 24, The District will be Santa's home away from the North Pole. Visitors have the chance to meet Santa in person at his cozy cottage and choose from three packages that suit their budget and preferences. This is a fantastic opportunity to create magical memories with Santa. In addition, on December 3, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., The District, in partnership with Best Buddies Nevada, will host a special sensory-friendly day, ensuring that everyone, including those who prefer a quieter and calmer setting, can enjoy the holiday spirit.

Furthermore, pet owners are in for a treat with a pet photo party on December 11 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. This is a wonderful chance to capture some festive memories with your furry friends and Santa.

Embracing the Festivities with the Menorah Lighting

Embracing diversity and inclusivity, The District at Green Valley Ranch will start Hanukkah festivities by lighting the Menorah from December 7 to December 15. The Menorah will shine every night until the end of the holiday, offering a special opportunity to share the joy and warmth of Hanukkah with the community.

Holiday Themed Markets

The District will enhance the shopping experience with holiday-themed markets this month. On December 9, they will host the Shopfest Collective Market, featuring carolers and encouraging donations to its toy drive. On December 16, you can enjoy the Makers Hive Market, with festive activities like holiday photo opportunities, kids' crafts, skating ornaments, and more.

A Charitable Heart

The District at Green Valley Ranch strongly commits to giving back to the community. This holiday season, they have teamed up with St. Jude's Ranch for Children, a community of hope and healing for children and young people, to collect toys specifically for teens in foster care aged 13 to 18. The District at Green Valley Ranch Marketing Director Micaela Wargo said, “We chose this age group because donations for teens are often scarce, and we firmly believe that everyone, regardless of age, deserves to have a magical holiday.”

Creating a Sense of Community Through Charity

These charitable efforts with both St. Jude's Ranch for Children and Best Buddies Nevada align perfectly with The District's values and mission as they aim to stay engaged with the local community. The District sees their events as an opportunity to raise awareness for these charities and create a sense of community.

The Local Holiday Experience

"We curated a dazzling winter wonderland where you can enjoy the wonders of sugarplum fairies, violinists, snow, and so much more," said Wargo. All events and activities are family-friendly, making The District the perfect Henderson destination for family gatherings and date nights. Whether you want a professional photo with Santa, to admire the festive lights on Main Street, or to simply soak in the holiday spirit, The District has something for everyone.
