This event is brought to you by the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce

Thank You Platinum Sponsor!

The Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce’s  “Lighting of the Star” has been a favorite community event shared by residents dating back to 1936. The same spirit of volunteerism, generosity and love of tradition exists today as Castle Rock businesses and residents prepare to kick off and celebrate the holiday season!  For many, this is a sacred family tradition, not to be missed!

New in 2020, Two Viewing Locations!

Castle Rock Adventist Location is Cancelled. Out of an abundance of caution for the patients at the Castle Rock Adventist Hospital and our Castle Rock community, there will not be any Starlighting festivities or a Viewing Stage located at the Castle Rock Adventist Hospital on Saturday, Nov 21st which was previously planned. This decision is to alleviate any obstructions for those dealing with covid-19 illnesses and other hospital services. The Castle Rock Adventist Hospital is a very proud supporter of our historic Starlighting holiday community event.  Registered CRAH attendees will be reassigned to the PS Miller Amphitheater location. Unfortunately, due to new capacity restrictions, we are unable to accommodate All Waitlisted attendees.  We apologize for the inconvenience, and we encourage you to host virtual viewing parties with your family at home or at a different location this year.

Don’t forget to enjoy the Rink at the Rock, an outdoor ice skating rink in downtown Castle Rock as well.
