For nearly half a century, the Saint Charles Christmas Traditions festival has helped create cherished memories for the young and young at heart. With a unique blend of storytelling, history, and some fairy tale whimsy, visitors from around the globe have been transported to a world of yuletide nostalgia and fantasy, where reindeer fly, Victorian carolers share a cheerful tune, and sugarplums dance in your head.

As we prepare to enter our 46th season, our festive fantasy world could not completely disregard the challenges of the real world. We beg your indulgence during this season of peculiarities as you note that some of your favorite festival attractions and activities may be experiencing modifications (or in some cases may be postponed until next year) in order to keep everyone happy and healthy.

But rest assured, your favorite legendary characters will still be there, and this merry band of yuletide personalities look forward to making your season bright as the quaintly decorated historic district provides the perfect backdrop.

For 46 seasons, Saint Charles Christmas Traditions has striven to help the concerns of the real world melt away and allow revelers to experience the enchantment of the holiday season like a kid again. Never has that task been taken more seriously than this year.

We proudly welcome you to (safely) explore the holiday magic of historic Main Street, as we invite you to discover the wonder, discover the tradition, and discover why Saint Charles is the place where Christmas past comes to life.
