When North Dakota gets buried in snow each winter, we need a little holiday cheer to warm ourselves up. These Christmas towns in North Dakota all have events that inspire us to keep a warm place in our hearts for Christmas:
- Garrison, ND: Did you know there was an official Christmas town in North Dakota? Garrison lives up to its name with the Dickens Village Festival that starts in late November and runs for a few weekends into December. It is a true Victorian Christmas festival with horse-drawn carriage rides, Victorian garb, festive lights, and live entertainment. There are plenty of shops all decked out for the holidays that offer great deals on gifts and you can enjoy Tinsel & Treats every day.
- Bonanzaville, ND: This museum-like town outside of West Fargo makes a great Christmas town with its small-town charm. Celebrate Christmas on the Prairie in early December to see what life was like in frontier days when life was hard but simple. Learn about the history of the town and our earliest settlers with historic demonstrations about living on the prairie. When you take a wagon ride through town, give the Clydesdales a carrot or two for us.
- Fargo, ND: North Dakota's largest city won't be left out for the holidays. It may not have the classic charm of a small town, but it does have the Christkindlmarkt. This holiday tradition has origins in old-world Europe but is celebrated in various states and cities throughout the U.S. Drekker Brewing Company puts on the event toward the end of November.
