Winterfest: A 1920s Christmas

A Wagnalls tradition that families can celebrate together


Start a new family tradition at Winterfest this holiday season as we celebrate in grand style at The Wagnalls Memorial. This year’s 1920s Christmas theme promises extra glitz and glamour as guests step back in time to a period known for its decadence. In addition to beautifully decorated rooms and themed Christmas trees available for sale, we are planning the following festive activities:


  • Appearances by Santa, Mrs. Claus, and the Elves
  • Live singers
  • Bakery items and refreshments for sale
  • Reindeer displays
  • Children’s crafts
  • And more!
