Conner Prairie is gearing up for the holidays! A new festival will begin Nov. 27. Here is their press release:

For the second year in a row, visitors can once again enjoy A Merry Prairie Holiday while experiencing Conner Prairie’s magical festival in a new, safer way.

Beginning Friday, Nov. 27, through Sunday, Dec. 20, and on Tuesday and Wednesday, December 22-23, Conner Prairie’s grounds will be transformed into a winter wonderland of lights and warm holiday fun. From 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. nightly, guests can step into the past and explore holiday traditions from yesteryear while also creating new memories with their families.

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health of guests and staff alike, "A Merry Prairie Holiday" has been modified in key ways. The Welcome Center will be closed except for restrooms. Midway games, as well as activities and visits at Mr. and Mrs. Claus’s Cabin, will not take place this year, although Selfies with Santa will still be available for children at the Featherstone Barn on a first come, first served basis. Instead of children making gifts on-site in our North Pole Workshop, “Take and Make” crafts like leather bracelets and holiday ornaments will be available for purchase. However, guests can still take a ride on Kringle’s Carousel -- the attraction has a new home in the Civil War Journey for the 2020 season. In addition, the Winter Wonderland Stroll experience will be offered without wagon rides this year, and guests will have the chance to explore thousands of sparkling lights in the Reynolds Farm Equipment holiday lights displayed on the Conner Prairie grounds.

Tickets will be sold by day and time, allowing for better management of attendance numbers and safeguarding against crowds. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit: Conner Prairie is a living history museum located at 13400 Allisonville Road, Fishers, IN 46038. For more information visit
