Christmas Traditions of 1900 will be the theme throughout Dakota City Heritage Village. The horse-drawn trolley will transport you through the village streets as you explore the traditions of Christmas 1900’s style. Join in the caroling, warm yourself by an inviting wood-burning stove, and delight in the demonstrations of woodworking and holiday cooking as our villagers prepare for Christmas.
As a special treat, a presentation of A Christmas Carol will be featured in Ahlberg Hall by Children’s Castle Theater. Don’t forget to visit St. Nicholas!
Our buildings will be illuminated inside and out throughout our village. You are welcome to drive through the Village any evening during the month of December to enjoy this holiday tradition.
Trolley rides are free with paid admission.
Enjoy holiday cooking in the Harris House and our blacksmith at the anvil. The Carpentry and Print Shops will also present demonstrations. Choirs and musicians will provide holiday music in the Church, and dramatic readings will be performed in the Library.
Hot food, beverages and treats will be available to purchase in the Drugstore. Candy and Christmas oranments can be purchased in the General Store.
The Gift Shop will be open with holiday goodies and treasures to purchase.
