The biggest shopping season of the year starts this week. With Castle Rock’s 12 Stops of Christmas, you can shop locally to find those special gifts, and you might even win a little something for yourself.

Back for the second year, Castle Rock’s Season of the Star is the community’s premier holiday event series. This year, it’s presented by the Promenade at Castle Rock. The six-event series kicks off Saturday, Nov. 26, with the 12 Stops of Christmas.

Here’s how it works:

  • Pick up your 12 Stops passport at Festival Park’s North Pole Welcome Center starting at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 26. (Or, print it online at, starting the same day.)
  • Then, visit the businesses on the list. With a purchase of $5 or more, you’ll get a stamp from the business. (Hint: you’re also giving to your community by helping the local economy.)
  • Once you get 12 stamps, return it to the North Pole Welcome Center where you’ll be entered to win a prize worth more than $300. The deadline to enter is Dec. 31.

This year’s participating businesses include:

  • Vista Vino – 611 Wilcox St.

Season pass-holder tickets include one or two general admission tickets for each of the five concerts in the series. The cost is $100 for an individual pass-holder and $175 for two pass-holders. Artists will be announced in early 2017. It’s the gift that says, “I want to make memories with you!” Purchase passes at
