Event Series Event Series: CHRISTMAS IN NEW HARMONY


December 3, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Our celebration includes parades, vendors, food, music, children’s activities, Santa visits, a Gnome Scavenger hunt, horse and carriage rides, unique shopping and a wonderful house tour on Sunday!

This little town brings back the warmth of an old-fashioned Christmas where you’re walking from shop to shop, enjoying the sounds of carolers in the streets and sampling the tasty treats of the holidays!  Our vendors provide everything from home baked goodies to incredible works by skilled artisans that make exquisite gifts for those on your list.  And the Holiday House Tour highlights the diversity of architectural styles in this beautiful and historic town.

Come for a day or spend the weekend at one of our guesthouses, bed and breakfasts or the New Harmony Inn.
