Click here to explore homes on the Advent Window Walk.

Advent Window Walk is a living advent calendar in residential downtown Lancaster. For each night of December, a historic home will reveal a festive design in a newly decorated window. By Christmas Eve, the advent windows of 24 homes will be illuminated for nighttime viewing. The Decorative Arts Center of Ohio will reveal a final design on Christmas night. The participating homes are located on Wheeling and King Streets (between High and Broad Streets) and High Street (between King and Main Streets).

The Advent Window Walk is a grassroots neighborhood project inspired by a Germanic Christmas tradition. Come see the beautiful homes in historic downtown Lancaster and explore this Tinsel & Traditions event! Use #AdventWindowWalk on social media to share your experience and pictures with others.
