The Holidays are Here at The Village Shops!

Have you made a trip down to The Village Shops recently? There are many *sparkling* reminders that we have officially entered the holiday season, some of which include Naples largest Christmas tree, garland wrapped walkways, illuminated palm trees, wreaths galore, and a beautiful display of over 100,000 twinkling Christmas lights that will have you saying “WOW!”.

Let’s just say, it is never too early to start feeling festive! With that said, we are kicking off the holiday season early not only with décor but with holiday events. It is time to save the dates for the festive fun that is soon to come at The Village Shops!

Grand Illuminations – Saturday, November 18, 2023 from 3-7pm

Holiday on the Bay – Saturday, December 23, 2023 from 3-7pm


These events will be nothing short of a magical holiday experience with family-friendly activities to help get the whole everyone in the holiday spirit. Santa is making a special trip to Naples’ North Pole to visit with all the boys and girls to review holiday wish lists! You can catch Santa in his favorite spot, stationed in front of the beautifully decorated and brightly illuminated Christmas tree on the north side of The Village Shops. Dress in your holiday best to capture complimentary printed and emailed photos.

Also be sure to take part in a snow show, sing along with the Dickens Period Carolers, and visit with your favorite furry and reptile friends from Kowiachobee Animal Preserve.

We look forward to seeing you this holiday season! The Village Shops can be reached by calling 239-261-6100.
