Celebrate an old-fashioned holiday at Old Cowtown Museum’s Victorian Christmas event this season in Wichita. Stroll on lamp-lit, carol-filled streets, warm up with a cup of hot cocoa, visit with Santa, and take a peek inside Santa’s workshop in the evenings on December 6, 7, 13 or 14.
Victorian Christmas has become a family tradition for many in the Wichita area. This old-fashioned Christmas celebration has plenty of activities for all ages as they interact with costumed interpreters and are immersed in holiday traditions and customs that originated in the Victorian era.
If you haven’t been before, you might be surprised to see the festively decorated streets filled with warm-hearted and good-natured merry-makers. It really is an old-fashioned holiday experience, and among my favorite experiences in Wichita so far!
A few of the fun activities include:
- Santa’s Workshop (aka Carpenter’s Shop)
- Children’s crafts and activities
- Carolers strolling the street
- Cookies, cocoa and popcorn stringing
- Stage coach and wagon rides
- Holiday decor/gifts for sale and more!
