Fall Activities

Have you seen the Christmas lights downtown?  If you haven’t, take a drive downtown!  When we start to see lights in the trees that means that Light Up Artesia is right around the corner-December 4th from 6:00 p.m. to 9 p.m.  We are currently accepting vendor applications for Light Up Artesia, as well as applications for our Parade of Lights. If your business or non-profit is interested in becoming a vendor, or entering the parade, please visit our website, or stop by 510 W. Main, or the Chamber office. 

Santa is escorted into town, and stays to listen to Christmas lists, many merchants stay open late and offer great deals, and the downtown is lit with thousands of lights.  Save Thursday, December 4th on your calendars and meet Artesia MainStreet and the Artesia Chamber downtown. Read More »
