Christmas in the Park – Derby, KS

I don’t believe they are doing this event in 2022

Derby Recreation Commission, Derby Public Library, and Julie Olmsted Insurance are hosting Christmas in the Park in Derby, Kansas this year on December 11, 2021!

It looks like it will be a fun time, with lots of activities for family and friends. 

Derby Christmas in the Park

The fun day will include horse-drawn carriage rides, Santa’s Village, Breakfast with Santa at Derby Rec and more!

Most of the activities will happen in Derby’s Madison Avenue Central Park, but Breakfast and Photos with Santa is at the Derby Rec Center from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. $7 tickets include a breakfast of pancakes, scrambled eggs, and sausage links as well as pictures with Santa. Food is provided by Riverside Cafe Derby. 

All other activities at Derby’s hometown Christmas event are FREE and you do not need to register in advance.

Here’s an overview of the schedule for that day, but be sure to follow the Derby Rec Center’s Facebook event for updates and/or possible changes.
