The Provo Pioneer Village merchant is ready for the Pioneer Christmas celebration.

Provo residents and enthusiastic guests can step back in time and enjoy a Christmas on the border during the Pioneer Christmas Celebration in Provo Pioneer Village.

After a two-year hiatus, due to road construction and the COVID-19 pandemic, “A Pioneer Christmas” is back and the villagers are ready to receive the public.

The Pioneer Christmas event will take place on December 17, 18 and 20 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. A special program will begin at 6 p.m. There is a suggested donation of $ 2 per person, or $ 10 per family, for entry.

Residents, where possible, are encouraged to wear period clothing to add to the fun and ambiance of the evening.

The villagers will be joined by storytellers, a musical program, a visit from Santa Claus and refreshments.

“It’s the year to come to see the Village fully dressed for the season as you walk the grounds,” said Steve Nelson, Director and Honorary Mayor. “Experience for yourself the sights and sounds of what it would have been like to celebrate an old-fashioned 1800s Christmas in Provo.”

The special program will include music and dancing. Visitors are encouraged to take their children to school to visit Santa Claus.

As at other times of the year, there will be unique pioneer exhibits in the historic cabins, merchants, wagons, carpentry shop, school, and blacksmith shop.
