Noel Night 2013

Noel Night 2013

Noel Night 2013 in Telluride happens Dec. 4 this year. Always occurring on an the first Wednesday in December, locals, businesses, and visitors are gearing up for the festivities.

It’s a Telluride tradition that offers discounts, give-aways, sneak-peaks, as well as foods and beverages, and all in the name of shopping local. Telluriders can purchase gifts in the canyon and keep their money in the community. It’s the biggest local shopping night of the year.

A ceremony will be held on Colorado Avenue, the main street, and all of the Christmas lights will be turned on then.

Some exciting things are new this season.

Apotheca, the local integrative pharmacy, has moved locations. Now sunny-side and located on the Main Street in a more spacious venue, they will celebrate their grand opening Noel Night. Discounts will be available, and their products include organic skin care, supplements, teas, and more.

According to Apotheca employee Megan, “We’ll have the grand re-opening, catering by There, the restaurant, and we’ll have tons of holiday items, grab bags, and a lively fun time.” She said, “We love our new space and should have it all opened up and set up by Noel night.”

Telluride Sports will host their discount promotion. Shoppers can randomly grab discounts out of a bag in the amounts of 10 – 30% off at the register. Locals can take advantage of savings on winter gear and ski and snowboard equipment.

Similarly, the Patagonia store is celebrating with a drawing for discounts. Manager Rusty Scott said, “We’ll have snacks— like Christmas cookies and other treats— and prizes given away in our drawing when you draw for discounts.”

Studio G, a local’s favorite for facials, waxing, massage, and beauty products, will also be having the discount grab at the register. Discounts are good for products, as well as services. All purchases must be made on Noel Night to receive the Studio G discount.

And, it’s likely the seasonal opening of many Telluride restaurants. Locals can relax knowing that their favorite Asian Fusion and Thai food are back for winter. Honga’s Lotus Petal and Siam will then be open, as well as the Chop House, La Marmot, 221, and Allred’s.

Many local Telluride businesses will be accepting donations for Angel Baskets, a local charity that benefits needy families for the holidays.

And, at 5:00 p.m., the Telluride AIDs Benefit Fashion Show tickets will go on sale. It’s a sold out event each February, and this is one of the highlight events of the year in town. These are purchased at Telluride Real Estate Corporation on Colorado Avenue.

Noel Night is a family-friendly event in Telluride. Most local businesses will be open and celebrating in some fashion.

Telluride businesses will express their gratitude and give back to their community.

Noel Night is the season kick-off, and this year is especially exciting as Telluride has fresh snow and is expecting a great opening of the ski resort.

Local kindergartener Erika Easterbrooks says, “I’m excited for the candy canes and cookies at Alpine Bank.”
