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, and take a peek inside Santa’s workshop on December 1, 2, 8 or 9.
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. 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
- Horse-drawn wagon rides
- Holiday decor/gifts for sale and more!
You can see the Victorian Christmas program for more information on the times and locations of musical performances, and where to find crafts for sale, hot cocoa, and ol’ Saint Nick! (Click on the picture to enlarge.)
Plus, when you visit Victorian Christmas, save your receipt to receive a discount on admission to Botanica’s Illuminations. With the receipt, you’ll pay the Botanica member price of $7 rather than the regular admission price of $10.
Although Victorian Christmas is only held on two weekends, the receipt deal is valid for any night of Illuminations. You don’t have to do both attractions on one night. Save your receipt from Cowtown and use it on a different night for Illuminations.
