About Christmas in Bedford Falls

“It’s A Wonderful Life” in Real Life

“It’s a Wonderful Life” is one of the most iconic Christmas movies in existence. Generation after generation has watched as George Bailey learned that the Christmas holiday is more than just presents and money. He learned that all of us are important and that the gifts we receive are found not in boxes but in our family and friends. Wouldn’t we all like to visit the little town of Bedford Falls and experience the magic of Christmas in that quaint and charming town?

Good news! For one day a year, you can absolutely do that. Once a year, the City of Bedford, Ohio chooses one day in December to transform itself into the iconic little town of Bedford Falls. Shopkeepers greet their visitors with holiday treats of all kinds. Santa and Mrs. Claus settle down on their holiday throne to receive little children and listen to their hopes and wishes for what they will receive under the Christmas Tree. Crafts, hot cocoa, live music, Lolly the Trolly and so much more is available to all who attend – and all for FREE.

While you are visiting Bedford Falls, make sure to get some of your holiday shopping done at one of the many little shops located on Broadway Avenue and, if you get hungry, you can visit one of the many restaurants located in and around Bedford, OH.

Mark your calendars and plan to bring the whole family to the place where angels get their wings and the magic of the season is real and alive!
