Event Description

Take the time to enjoy the Holiday season on Saturday, December 2nd. During our Christmas in Kalona Celebration, downtown will be teeming with activities for all ages. Musicians like Lee Klett, Pennies on the Rail and Banjoy will be playing on the sidewalks by campfires.

Stop by the live nativity display to feed the animals, visit with Mary & Joseph, or take your photo with the angels and shepherds.

Kids can fill Walking Stockings at businesses all around Kalona. Make a wish with Santa and decorate your own ornament or cookies. Find treasures and gifts when you shop from 40 vendors at our Christmas Market. Take home treats from the Cookie Walk, watch a movie at the Library, and enjoy spirits from wine tastings at local retailers.

Need a some fresh air? Take a moment to stretch your legs just a few minutes outside of town at our country stores too!

Poured Painting classes for kids and adults alike are in the afternoon at Kalona Brewing Co. Throughout the day, kids 12 and under can enter to win one of four sleds given away by the Kalona Optimist Club. Child must be present to win. Wagon rides, carolers, smores, Lighted Golf Cart parade, and the Christmas Tree Walk will carry on through the evening at the Kalona Historical Village.
