15,000-square-foot Christmas experience opens in Colorado

Guests can wander through a surreal mashup of nostalgic scenes and reconnect with the joy of the holiday season.

AURORA, Colo. — Colorado's campiest and quirkiest holiday tradition is back.

"Camp Christmas" has returned to its original location, indoors at Stanley Marketplace, for the first time since 2019.

The exhibition is a 15,000-square-foot, 360-degree immersive experience and kaleidoscope of yuletide cheer.

The experience lets guests wander through a surreal mashup of nostalgic scenes, scratch their heads at playful pun trees, and reconnect with the joy of the season.

"Camp Christmas" was created by Colorado-based installation artist Lonnie Hanzon and Hanzon Studios. Hanzon has been recognized for Christmas installations at Neiman Marcus, Houston Zoo Lights, and original Denver Parade of Lights floats.

"Camp Christmas" will have self-guided tours where photos are encouraged, festive food and refreshments, plus visits from Santa Claus.

Tickets for "Camp Christmas" are on sale now at DenverCenter.org.

The Hangar at Stanley Marketplace is located in Aurora at 2501 North Dallas Street.
