Little has changed in Sharon Springs in over 200 years, and when revelers flock to Main Street the first Saturday of every December dressed in their holiday best, it actually looks like a snapshot of a village frozen in time.

It’s now our fourth annual Victorian Christmas Celebration, and what separates  the celebration apart from other holiday activities is that we encourage EVERYONE who comes into town to dress the part!  It could be as simple as a top hat and long coat, or a bit of lace at the neck and a long skirt, or you could join those who spend all year dreaming up their Victorian finery.  You get to be a part of the picture!

This is the most intimate festival we have in Sharon Springs during the year, and you have the chance to chat with everyone in the village–and we’re all on our best behavior (during the day)!

For complete details of the day along with information about lodging and restaurants in the area, check out Enjoy Sharon Springs

    Maybe one day if we get courageous enough to brave the winter, we’ll be able to attend this wonderful sounding event!

    LOVED the bedside table video. However I always include a martini glass and a small bottle of vodka in case they awake in the night and accidentally take a sip of water!
