2022 Carriage Rides

A Castle Rock Holiday Tradition, the Downtown Castle Rock Carriage Rides will be back Downtown starting Friday, November 25th, 2022 and end service on Friday, December 30th, 2022.  Carriage Rides will be offered each Wednesday through Saturday from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM from Friday, November 25th to Friday, December 30th (excluding December 24th).

We are planning to offer some limited in person sales this year and online sales.  The best way to get tickets will be to arrive early for in person sales, or be waiting online on a laptop connected to a high speed internet connection when sales go live in November.  

By popular demand we have added 90 additional rides to this season’s schedule, and we are selling tickets this year both in person and online based on your feedback.

We will be selling 75 Carriage Rides in person next Thursday, November 3rd from 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM at the Castle Rock Autoplex – Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram Bldg. at 1520 S Wilcox Street Castle Rock, CO.

How many rides are available in the 2022/2023 season?

There are over 350 rides available this season.  This exciting holiday event has grown a little each year.  This event began several years ago by offering carriage rides, with 1 carriage on 1 night a week.  Based on your feedback, now 2 carriages at a time provide rides 4 nights a week.  Understanding that horse drawn carriages tend to slow traffic a little, a balanced approach with regard to traffic and number of rides has been taken.  With positive feedback favoring more rides, another night of the week could be added next year. 

We are so GRATEFUL for your interest in visiting Downtown Castle Rock during the holidays and we recognize that even if carriage rides were offered every night of the week, it is unlikely that a ride would be available for every person that wants one.  Your visits support the many wonderful and creative small business owners that call Downtown Castle Rock home.  Happy Holidays!
