Langley: Holidays by the sea

‘Tis the season to shop local

What if you could turn your holiday shopping into an experience you won’t forget and maybe you’ll even create a new holiday tradition? Treat yourself and your loved ones as you stay on beautiful Whidbey Island and #shoplocal at Langley’s inspired shops. I can’t think of a more relaxing and special way to start the holiday season than to slow down on Whidbey Island and partake in the holiday sparkle of Langley. Beginning the weekend after Thanksgiving, the town is transformed into a bright, holiday destination. Artists decorate downtown Langley’s doors and windows with festive folly as only Langley can.  For all the latest details on the town’s special events check out their list of events.

Langley WA at Holidays

Beginning right after Thanksgiving this charming seaside village is transformed, and it all begins with the Lighting of Langley…

Lighting of Langley

Langley sparkles for the holidays with the annual Lighting of Langley community celebration at 2-5 p.m. Saturday, November 27, 2021 behind Blue Sound Music on the lawn on Second Street. Enjoy a photo booth, sipping hot cocoa, cookies and a socially distanced Santa in a bubble! This annual tree-lighting kicks off the holiday season in the Village by the Sea.

Holly Jolly Holiday Parade

Langley hosts its annual holiday parade on December 2 at 11 am. Musicians, youth groups, pets, families and floats will march up and down First and Second Street. Grab your jacket and a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy this jolly parade. You might see old time cars, tractors, animals, and don’t miss the grand finale with Santa on a fire engine! Check out Visit Langley Chamber of Commerce for the updated date and time.
