Saint Charles Christmas Traditions® 2021


For nearly half a century, Saint Charles Christmas Traditions® has made the holiday spirit of the past come to life for the young and young at heart. With a unique blend of storytelling, history, and fairy tale whimsy, guests are welcomed into a world of yuletide nostalgia and fantasy where reindeer fly, sugarplums dance in your head, and an array of international ambassadors invite you to explore unique holiday customs from around the world.

The festival is open from November 26 to December 24. (See days and hours below.) Discover a holiday feast for all of your senses: experience the taste of genuine hot-roasted chestnuts fresh from an open fire, witness the pageantry of a delegation of global Santa figures dressed in the cultural attire of their home countries, listen to the timeless Christmas melodies sung by Victorian carolers, breathe in the aroma of the crisp pine greenery that festively trims the historic district, as you feel the well-worn character of the centuries-old bricks of Main Street under your feet. We proudly welcome you to explore the yuletide magic of this one-of-a-kind festival as we invite you to discover the wonder, discover the memories, and discover why Saint Charles is the place where Christmas past comes to life!

Festival Hours for 2021: Wednesdays and Fridays 6:00 - 9:00 p.m., Saturdays noon to 9:00 p.m., Sundays noon to 5:00 p.m. and Christmas Eve 11:00 am to 2:00 p.m. For more information visit https://www.facebook.com/stcharleschristmas/.
