The 2020 Courthouse Lighting Ceremony is Tuesday, Nov. 24th at 7 p.m. This year we will honor our EDUCATORS and KIDS
with a fireworks show coordinated to music and a 35-foot Christmas tree decorated with 3,000 LED lights in the Courthouse Rotunda.
From 4-7 p.m. we will have photos with santa, bounce houses, a band, military, and first responder vehicles on display in front of the
Pueblo County Courthouse. The Courthouse is located at 215 W. 10th Street in Pueblo, CO.
The Courthouse Lighting is completely funded with private money.
We rely heavily on your sponsorship and donation. Please consider

The Pueblo County Courthouse will be completely decorated with
Christmas decorations. This includes a 17-foot Christmas tree
on the second floor of the Courthouse, a log cabin, log reindeer,
and dozens of alpine trees.
The Pueblo County Courthouse Lighting is completely funded through private
donations and sponsors. In 2019 25 businesses raised a total of $25,000 to make
the program extra special. We rely heavily on sponsors and donors to make the
lighting ceremony what it is today. Any business, private person, or organization
may be a sponsor. In return for sponsorship your logo and business name will
be put on all of the marketing flyers and posters. Marketing materials reach
thousands of people within the Pueblo community.
Each year we wisely use private donor money to purchase a nice fireworks show.
The show is coordinated to music. The fireworks company we use purchases
their product from the same distributor as Disney World. We love to make
the fireworks show bigger, brighter, and better every year. We also use donor
money to rent bounce houses for the kids and to bring in a band,
cartoon portrait artist, and other fun entertainment for the Pueblo Community.
The Pueblo County Courthouse Lighting started in 2001 after the 9/11 attacks.
Former Pueblo County Commissioner Matt Peulen thought the County should do
something for Christmas. Mr. Peulen thought it would be nice to light up Pueblo's
Courthouse during the annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony. The tradition of decorating
the courthouse has been going on since 1912, when the Courthouse was constructed.
Traditionally, the Courthouse Lighting is the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Each year
the Courthouse is decorated on the inside based on the theme that is selected.
If you have a question about the Lighting Ceremony or would like to sponsor or get involved in anyway please contact Adam Uhernik at the Pueblo County Courthouse at 719-583-6534.
