Lighting of the Cressets returns in Colonial Williamsburg
The streets become illuminated in a smokey glow that only the Colonial Cressets can create. This event that happens in the Fall is now happening this summer for two evenings, June 30 & July 1, 2023 from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm. So head down to the historic Duke of Gloucester Street (DoG St) for the Lighting of the Cressets. Enjoy the evening as they bring our 18th-century streets to life at night with strolling musicians. Stop and have a drink in a tavern or shop and dine at one of the Colonial Williamsburg shops or restaurants.
Or just go out in the evening air and enjoy the most enchanting of streets in America. See the schedule here or check our daily calendar.
