After the tree lighting, head into the Cordova Center for the Annual Bidarki Bazaar to find great handcrafts and local vendors who have just the right thing for your Christmas shopping list. Then, stroll around our local retails to enjoy Moonlight Madness late-night shopping that night and every Friday night in December leading up to Christmas.
Hometown Holiday Kick-off
Hometown Holiday Kick-off & Tree Lighting
Join the Cordova Chamber of Commerce on Main Street in front of the Cordova Center, either in person or via live stream from home, to share some holiday cheer while singing carols and watching the Big Tree Lighting at Cordova’s Hometown Holiday Kick-off.
The merchants of Cordova get a bit of “Moonlight Madness” this time of year and keep late hours on the Friday nights before Christmas to give Cordovans extra chances to find that perfect gift. This year we have Cordova Cash so you can be sure to Shop Cordova First this holiday season and do your shopping with your local merchants who support your community!

November 27th, December 4th, 11th & 18th, 2020
