Solomons Christmas Walk 2023

Solomons Celebrates 42nd year of Christmas Walk on December 9th!

 Dear friends,

Solomons Business Association will celebrate its 42nd year of Christmas Walk with the fabulous Lighted Boat Parade on Saturday, December 9th.

The SBA will celebrate its 42nd Christmas Walk with a new look. We will launch our Christmas celebrations with a fabulous Solomons Vendor Village in several locations in Solomons. We hope to grow the Vendor Village every year onwards until we become famous as The Solomons Vendor Christmas Village. See below our call for vendors for Christmas Walk 2023.

Saturday December 9th at 6 p.m. weather permitting, we have the Lighted Boat Parade, coordinated by Solomons Island Yacht Club, Solomons Yachting Center,  and Southern Maryland Sailing Association, will begin at dusk and end along the Riverwalk at approximately 7:15 p.m. A captain’s meeting covering the route, safety issues and rules for judging will begin at 5:15 p.m. at the Solomons Yachting Center. Contact at or call Fleet captain on 667-256-6272 See participation forms below.

The lights on the Christmas tree, the gazebo and on the riverwalk will be installed and lit . Look for Santa’s mailbox for letters to Santa, at the Gazebo, these letters will be collected and published on our SBA FB pages. (write on letter if you do not want it published). We ae looking for a sponsor.

A beautiful Christmas tree will arrive Thursday, November 30th. The public are welcome to contribute decorations at any time.

Our house and business decorating theme this year will be Island/Nautical. Photography will commence 12/2 until 12/12 and added to SBA FB page. Decorated houses and businesses in Solomons/Dowell will be scored and voted on by the public on our FB page. Final tally is Saturday December 16th at which time winners will be announced. Starting December 3rd, we will be watching as the decorations go up and adding them to our SBA FB page. Extra points will be garnered if elements of our theme ‘Island/Nautical’ is included.
