Frontier Christmas is an evening of classic holiday merrymaking at the Sharlot Hall Museum, immediately following the Courthouse Lighting Ceremony. Stop by 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. for cookies, cider, crafts, and fun.
Luminarias line the Museum walkways as visitors meander from building to building, visiting with Living History interpreters, meeting Father Christmas, or trying their hand at Victorian-inspired crafts. Families can print their own holiday greeting cards on an 1865 printing press in the Print Shop, or learn an early Prescott school lesson (complete with slates and slate pencils) in the Schoolhouse. Wafting scents from the Ranch House hint at cookies baking and the Governor’s Mansion tree sparkles with nostalgia in its vintage trimmings.
Father Christmas will visit the Museum campus in person to usher in the holiday spirit throughout the evening. Kids (young and old) are invited to make a variety of Christmas crafts to take home, and everyone can enjoy a warm pour of cider and a cookie. The Museum Store stands ready to complete gift lists with thoughtfully-curated items from local artisans.
Don’t miss this fun Christmas event for the whole family!
