Kentucky Museum - Christmas In Kentucky

*Christmas In Kentucky 2022 will NOT be rescheduled*

 We rely on WKU students for this event. Students leave campus December 9th after finals. 


Join us as the Kentucky Museum hosts its sixteenth annual holiday event Christmas in Kentucky. This free, family-oriented event has become a holiday tradition with many area residents. Conveniently scheduled after the Jaycee Christmas Parade, Christmas in Kentucky is guaranteed to put guests of all ages in the holiday spirit!

Christmas in Kentucky always incorporates the holiday spirit with the WKU spirit. Big Red will be weaving his own special brand of magic, while carols are sung by the amazing Treblemakers. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be hearing Christmas wishes, along with Mr. Magic  performing several shows, and a balloon twister whipping up fun creations. Gingerbread and hot cider will be served in the Felts log house next to the Museum. 

Children love the ornament making in the museum's beautiful Kentucky Room. A variety of activities are staffed by WKU Delta Zetas, and the WKU Chemistry Club.
