Sleigh Bells and Santa for Christmas at Fort Larned

December 10, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm


Come to Fort Larned for the annual Christmas Past celebration on December 10 from 12:00 to 4:30 pm. Get a picture with Santa then take a ride in his horse-drawn carriage, complete with sleigh bells and Christmas wreaths. Other activities include living history in the Barracks and Officers’ quarters, hot apple cider and popcorn in the Visitor Center and demonstrations by the Fort’s blacksmith.

The soldiers and officers at Fort Larned in the 1860’s enjoyed Christmas activities and traditions like we do today. Join as we recreate an old-fashioned frontier Christmas at one of the best-preserved Indian Wars era forts in the country. Also, don’t forget about your Christmas shopping in our bookstore and gift shop. All items will be 15% off from December 10 through 18.
