Downtown Yuletide Walking Tour

Downtown York Yuletide Walking Tour

Get in the holiday spirit in Downtown York with this walking tour, led by your guide, local historian, Terrence Dutchie Downs. 

Learn of York Yuletide Firsts, Central PA holiday traditions, and Downtown history at various outdoor and indoor stops, including the Goodridge Freedom Center (123 E Philadelphia St) and the Christmas Putz at First Moravian Church (39 N Duke St). A Christmas Putz is a retelling of the story of Christ’s birth through narration and music, while tiny lights illuminate each miniature scene. Putz is from the German word “putzen” meaning to decorate. 

Stay tuned as additional stops are added. This is a WALKING Tour that will last 75-90 minutes and will be both indoor and outdoor.

The tour will meet in the southeast corner of Continental Square (outside Northwestern Mutual) and will step off at 6:30pm.

Please note, there are no refunds on tickets. All tickets purchased are considered a direct donation to Downtown Inc, a 501(c)(3).
