There’s no better way to ring in the Christmas season than kicking it off at A Victorian Country Christmas Festival. Entering its 35th 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.
Visit Santa’s Village in the Expo Hall! Whisper wishes in Santa’s ear and take home a keepsake photo too! Optional photo packages are available for purchase.
Have your face painted, send a letter to Santa in the Magical Mailbox, and don’t miss Tiny Art Face Painting and “Professor Bamboozle” Balloon art in action!
Santa’s Village opens at 11AM every day of the Festival and runs until show close. Stop by and see the man-in-red!
The Western Washington Toyota Dealers 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, Good Company, Boot Boogie Babes and the Dance Academy of Puyallup.
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 Dickens Carolers will be roaming the grounds today from 10am to Noon and again at 4pm to 6pm. The Dickens Carolers are a popular 4-person a cappella group that sings a variety of traditional and contemporary Christmas carols.Courtesy of Harley Exteriors.
