TONIGHT! Ridgefield Welcomes the Holidays on Friday with Santa, Song, Emcee Ira Joe Fisher, Tune in From Home!

The exciting news coming out of the North Pole is that Santa will make a visit during the VIRTUAL HOLIDAY CELEBRATION which is being held in lieu of the annual downtown countdown on Friday, November 27, 2020 at 5:45 p.m. Although there will be no in person activities, an exciting event is planned that people will be able to view in several ways:

• Comcast - Channel 24 • Youtube CHANNEL - Town of Ridgefield, CT - Access here.

• The Town Website on BoxCast available here.

 Ira Joe Fisher will return as Master of Ceremonies along with other participants including First Selectman Rudy Marconi, Sarah Grossman from the Chamber of Commerce and Mary Jones from Downtown Ridgefield.

While the lights on Main Street are already lit, ten-year-old Conner Curran, his twin brother Kyle and eight-year old brother William will “pull the holiday switch” during the virtual event to officially kick off Ridgefield’s Holiday season.

ACT, the Ridgefield High School Choir, the Ridgefield High School Orchestra, the Prospector, the Theatre Barn, the Ridgefield Chorale, The First Congregational Church, the Theatre Barn and more have planned an entertaining evening.

Santa’s much-anticipated visit straight from the North Pole via zoom will give children of all ages an opportunity to see Santa and to hear his 2020 message specifically for Ridgefield.

A special email address that goes straight into Santa’s mailbox has been set up for anyone wishing to send a letter. Send letters to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

“We wanted to find a way to celebrate even if we can’t be downtown in person for a countdown,” said First Selectman Rudy Marconi. “This is the year to stay home so we can all stay safe and some very creative people have put together a not-to-be-missed show. I’m pretty excited about it.”

Tune in at 5:45 p.m. for a very unique and special FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS, Friday, November 27, 2020.
