During Holidays on the Hill, visitors can immerse themselves in the season’s spirit by strolling through one of Philadelphia’s most historic villages! Guests can enjoy the holiday cheer of Chestnut Hill with a brass quartet, view an outdoor model train display at Morris Arboretum and take advantage of late-night shopping hours on Wednesdays. Refreshments are served at many local businesses to add charm to the season, and guests can have their picture taken with our beloved Santa!

Chestnut Hill provides a nostalgic background for a holiday experience that harkens back to an earlier time.  Carolers will stroll the Avenue to add their music to the mood!

From Small Business Saturday to the legendary Stag & Doe Nights every Wednesday between Thanksgiving and Christmas, Chestnut Hill has vibrant holiday traditions.
