Holidays in Coshocton

Coshocton is filled to the brim with locally-made artisan goods, antiques, and rustic shops, making it the perfect destination for holiday shopping. A gift from a Coshocton shop has meaning, character, and depth. Give the gift of supporting local businesses, restaurants, and craftspeople!

The Downtown Coshocton’s Holiday Open Houses kick off the holiday shopping season on November 4. This festive day is filled with shopping, Santa, make-and-take crafts, baked goods, and more!

It’s easy to find special gifts at the locally owned Shops of Roscoe Village. Fine jewelry may be found at The House of GA Fisher Jewelers, where the family has served the community with excellent service and quality for three generations. River Ridge Leather specializes in hand-made items made with the highest quality leather. Specialty food stores include bakeries for people and dogs, an old-fashioned candy shop, and a market featuring Ohio-made food and wines. Other shops feature home decor, Vera Bradley, and locally made art, and ladies’ clothing.

Coshocton’s Historic Downtown District is also filled with quality shops, including a two-story antique mall, a nationally recognized quilt shop, clothing for the whole family, gift shops, and another multi-generation jewelry store. A shopping event for the whole area is planned for December 2, 2023.

Starting after Thanksgiving, several local tree farms open for “Cut-your-own-Christmas Tree” experiences. Make memories and give the gift of supporting local entrepreneurs as you decorate and shop! More information may be found at

Be sure to save the dates for the annual Christmas Candlelighting Ceremonies in Historic Roscoe Village! The first two Saturdays in December (December 2 & 9) are special days in the village. Imagine strolling the historic street with a bit of snow in the air, evergreens and lit trees along the walks, candles in the windows, a welcoming light to all who come. Families enjoy the day of shopping and special activities that may include carolers, roasted chestnuts, a visit with Santa, and crafts, followed by the Christmas Candlelighting Ceremony, which begins at 6pm. Gathering at the base of the village’s giant Christmas tree with friends old and new to remember the past, hear stories, and see the 30-foot tree be lighted. The passing of the candlelight from one person to another is magical. As the light brightens the darkness, so does the sound of Silent Night, which is sung throughout the crowd.
