November 26th to December 24th


Step back in time and enjoy holidays of old in historic downtown Hannibal's Victorian Festival of Christmas! Magical sights and sounds will transport you back more than a century to the wonder and enchantment of an authentic Victorian holiday celebration. Horse-drawn carriages, carolers, Wassail tastings, warm greetings and beautifully decorated storefronts will get you into the holiday spirit. Fun for the whole family, we hope you will join us during this most wonderful time of the year!
