Unfortunately, Victorian Christmas at Cowtown has been canceled for 2020. However, Cowtown will still be decorated for Christmas and open to visit.
Celebrate an old-fashioned holiday at Old Cowtown Museum’s Victorian Christmas event this season in Wichita. Stroll along lamp-lit, carol-filled streets, warm up with a cup of hot cocoa, and check out the Victorian dancers in the evenings on two weekends in December.
Please note: Since things change so frequently, be sure to use the links we provide in each post to double-check all events before you go.
Victorian Christmas has become a family tradition for many in the Wichita area. This year it will be held December 4 and 5, and again December 11, and 12, 2020. Each evening’s activities will be from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The event will be held safely. Masks are required and you are encouraged to maintain a safe distance from others.
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:
- Victorian dancers
- Enjoy hot chocolate and simpler, festive times
- See what’s cooking at the farm
- Costumed interpreters and an immersive historical experience
