Experience an Enchanting Season

Director of Public Affairs, Christine DeJoy shared a brief overview of all the incredible highlights of this upcoming holiday event that include a Winter Wonderland wagon ride through the Reynolds display and other structures throughout the historic grounds lit with thousands of twinkling lights.

“A Merry Prairie Holiday will be set up a lot like ‘Headless’ in that it will encompass the majority of the grounds,” DeJoy enthusiastically shared. “For those who love Conner Prairie by Candlelight, [A Merry Prairie Holiday] will include this tradition throughout all of Prairie Town where guests can visit the 1860s Hoosier Homefront and Soldiers Camp to learn how they celebrated the season during the troubling times of the Civil War. At the same time, guests can see how the holidays were celebrated in 1836 Indiana in Prairie Town.”

Additional highlights will include a toy-making workshop in Featherston Barn in the North Pole area where guests can “make and take” gifts that are wrapped—on site—via the magic of the North Pole. Guests can also enjoy a vintage carousel, a myriad of games at the Reindeer Games Midway, Polar Plunge Dry Tubing on the hill and so much more!
