Hop into the Holidays

The Discovery District’s Holiday Trolley Hop returns to downtown for an eighth time on Saturday, December 4 from 12-4 p.m. This popular event features free trolley rides throughout the eastern part of downtown with stops at various merchants and cultural institutions.


Hop from spot to spot to find unique holiday shopping options, plus fun kids’ activities at most locations. It’s a great way to shop local and support Discovery District businesses. The Hop begins at the Columbus Metropolitan Library Main Branch (96 S. Grant Ave.) or Kelton House Museum & Garden (586 E. Town St.). Both locations offer parking. Grab some family and friends and kick off your holiday shopping with a hop.


The Trolley Hop is sponsored in part by the Discovery Special Improvement District.
