Voted a top ten family holiday destination by USA Today, Holiday Nights is an authentic and immersive Christmas spectacle! In addition to seeing Santa and his reindeer, guests are able to go inside many of the Village homes decorated for the holidays, ice skate on the Village rink and enjoy live performances by the Dodworth Saxhorn Band, the 1st Michigan Colonial Fife & Drum Corps, and Victorian-era carolers.
Step into a Christmas card from the past. Don’t miss the most popular holiday event in the area, complete with candlelit paths, live entertainment, costumed presenters, horse-drawn wagon and Model T rides, delightful holiday shops, Santa and live reindeer, ice skating, a spectacular fireworks display and more. It’s America’s premier holiday celebration!
New this year, gather around the bonfire outside the Adams Family House to hear a special reading of Charles Dickens’ classic “A Christmas Carol or stop inside the Smiths Creek Depot to watch presenters package relief boxes for soldiers, similar to what they would have done during the Civil War-era. For the end of the evening, purchase an official Holiday Nights lantern and join the procession from Martha-Mary Chapel to Town Hall for a Fireworks finale accompanied by a sing-along of familiar holiday tunes.
Smell and taste the historically-inspired treats of the season. Food stations are planted along the paths featuring freshly-roasted chestnuts, hot apple cider and new this year, individual plum pudding, similar to the one made at Henry Ford’s birthplace.
