Reasons To Attend

A Victorian Country Christmas Festival…
More Than Great Shopping It’s A Memory Making Christmas Experience!

There’s no better way to ring in the Christmas season than kicking it off at A Victorian Country Christmas Festival. Entering its 34th year, this is one of the biggest Christmas events in the Northwest and now, it’s multi-generational with parents who attended as kids bringing their kids. A Victorian Country Christmas is not only a wonderful family event, it’s an incredible and unparalleled Christmas shopping experience. This is by no means a complete list, but here’s a few good reasons to attend this year’s Festival.

Signing Nativity & Stage Shows
Santa's Village
MItch Rossell (Dec. 3 @ 7pm)

Bigger is better. With so many vendors it’s like shopping at hundreds of specialty stores all in one place. A Victorian Country Christmas Festival is, by far, the largest event of its kind in the northwest. Bigger means more to look at, more to buy and more and better shopping choices.

Four amazing days. The show opens at 10AM, Thursday, December 1st and runs through Sunday, December 4th.  The show hours at 10AM-8PM Thursday-Saturday and 10AM-6PM on Sunday…that’s 38 hours of shopping and festive fun!

World-class entertainment. The Holiday Jubilee Theater is world-renowned. Don’t miss these memory making shows. Included in this year’s line-up are The Singing Nativity, Dysfunction Function, Silver Spurs Country Western Review, Will Powers Big Band, Tacoma Youth Symphony, Boot Boogie Babes, Truman Middle School Honor Groups and the Dance Academy of Puyallup.

Got Santa? Certainly! What Christmas would be complete without Santa listening to the wishes of children anticipating Christmas? Optional photo packages are available. Memories that last…start here.

Mitch Rossell! Hot off a tour with Garth Brooks, A Victorian Country Christmas and 98.9 The Bull is proud to present country star and singer/songwriter Mitch Rossell. He’s a shooting star right now and he’ll be playing the Holiday Jubilee Theater in the Showplex, Saturday night, December 3rd at 7PM. ALL the entertainment, including Mitch Rossell’s concert are FREE with admission into the show!

Combo Ticket. Go big or go home…right? Thursday, December 1st, opening day of the show is slated to be one for the books — and you can enjoy it ALL on one ticket! It’s the one day you can attend A Victorian Country Christmas AND Holiday Magic on one ticket and save $12! Don’t miss the tree lighting on Thursday night. A Victorian Country Christmas opens at 10AM and runs until 8PM and Holiday Magic opens at 4:30PM and runs until 8:30PM. You’ll need a full day to enjoy both shows. You can buy these tickets and all the show’s tickets online or at the gate.

Winter Wine Garden. Located in the Showplex, the Winter Wine Garden is serving a variety of wines perfect for enjoying a short break during your shopping journey. All proceeds go to benefit Positive Programs Services, Inc., a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to students attending after-school arts programs.

Parking’s free! We make it easy to attend this incredible Festival. We want you there…so we pick up the tab on parking.

Buy local. We’re proud to say that most of the exhibitors in this year’s show are local/northwest makers. These are small businesses, many are run by a single-person, family or small shop, handcrafting the items they’re selling. If you want to buy American-made and keep your hard-earned dollars local, this is the place to do it.

The Ultimate Christmas Shopping Experience. There are tens of thousands of gift items that are one-of-a-kind, unique and only available at this show. We’ve spent the last year, attending dozens of shows and making thousands of calls to land what we believe are the very best specialty items in over a hundred different categories and several hundred exhibitors…it’s like shopping at hundreds of small specialty stores! Jewelry, artwork, ornaments, clothing, specialty foods, spirits, home and holiday décor, glassware, photography, woodcarving and wood products, bath and beauty products, kid’s toys, wellness products and much more are all there, for sale and made locally. Walk down the streets of the Victorian Village adorned with festive Victorian store fronts and shop ‘til your heart’s content!

Santa’s Village. A Victorian Country Christmas Festival is truly fun for the whole family! When you stop at Santa’s Village for the kids to spend a little time with Santa be sure they drop a letter in the Christmas Wishes Magical Mailbox. There’s also face painting and popular entertainer, Bamboozled, with his magic and balloon animals!
