St. Charles Christmas Traditions

November 28 - December 24, 2014

Welcome to a place where Christmas past and present becomes one.  A place where storybook characters come to life before your very eyes.  A place where the typical hustle and bustle of the holiday season melts away, and allows you to enjoy the yuletide sights, sounds, and magic of yesteryear.

Welcome to Historic Main Street and Christmas Traditions! 

This annual month long festival celebrates the best of the holiday season.  Close your eyes and listen to the sounds of holiday music from the Victorian Carolers and the fife and drum corps.   Experience the unique shopping and dining opportunities found along the festively decorated brick lined streets.  Take in the scent of roasting chestnuts. Capture in your mind a time in America when life was simpler and Christmas was elegant and magical.  Christmas Traditions offers something special for everyone.  And with 2014 marking the 40th anniversary of this favorite holiday tradition, there has never been more to experience!
