The Lancaster City Art Galleries will be hosting a “Hot Cocoa Tasting Party” where participants will serve hot cocoa into the evening while attendees peruse the galleries. “Lancaster Shops Late” is also partnering with the 300 Block of North Queen Street with over 20 merchants participating in this festive event from the Block.

The City of Lancaster Office of Promotion, Lancaster City Alliance, and Music for Everyone are sponsoring roaming entertainment including Big Boy Brass and local holiday carolers! Lancaster Shops Late emerged through the suggestion of artist Loryn Spangler Jones of LSJ Studios. She grew up in a town that held a late-night shopping event every holiday season. We’re thankful for her idea and enthusiasm in making Shops Late happen in Lancaster City!
