Victorian Country Christmas Events
Events at the Victorian Christmas in Puyallup range from family-friendly to adult-only fun. A number of shows take place on several stages through the fairgrounds, and while these shows change each year, in general you can count on choirs performing Christmas favorites, bell choirs, and instrumental performances. Each year features a singing nativity sure to delight all audiences as well.
Much like the Washington State Fair, held on the same grounds during the fall, the Victorian Country Christmas has many vendors located in the Expo Hall & Pavilion and in the ShowPlex, both of which are permanent fixtures here. In these locations, you can buy holidays gifts, crafts, or watch artists in action.
Other perks of this Christmas event include an old-fashioned carousel, a tram ride transporting visitors through a Christmassy world of wonder, and even appearances by Santa. For adults only, there is a wine garden where visitors can sit down with a glass of wine, or purchase wine by the bottle.
