Festive Wisconsin Dells Christmas Events

Christmas is a special time here in the Wisconsin Dells. Usually, a thin sprinkling of white snow covers the ground and the trees and makes the season all the more festive. There are plenty of things to do in the Wisconsin Dells in the winter, but taking the time for holiday activities helps you savor the season before it comes and goes. So, check out these Wisconsin Dells Christmas events during your stay at Baker’s Sunset Bay Resort

Mid-Continent Railway Museum Santa Train 

The perfect family activity awaits you in North Freedom, just a 20-minute drive from the resort.  Hop aboard the Santa Train and your kids can meet Father Christmas himself, while his elves distribute small gifts. Local high school choirs sing carols to create the perfect festive ambiance for you and your family. The coal-fired stoves and steam heating in every train car will whisk you back to the early 1900s while keeping you warm during the 55-minute ride. 

Dells Trolley Winter Wonderland Express Tour 

The Dells Trolley during the winter is one of the best Wisconsin Dells Christmas events to attend. The Winter Wonderland Express Tour transports you to Red Ridge for an afternoon of sleigh rides, sipping on hot chocolate, sampling holiday sweets, and huddling around a bonfire. For an additional cost, you can even stop at Fawn Creek Winery for a tasting if you choose. If you bring  camera, you just might get the perfect picture for your family Christmas card during the four-hour excursion.  

Canadian Pacific Railway Holiday Train 

Christmas lights shouldn’t be confined to buildings. The Canadian Pacific Railway Holiday Train pushes the boundaries by decorating its train cars with thousands of bright Christmas lights and riding from all the way from Canada to the Midwest. Each stop yields holiday performances, food and drinks for sale, pictures with Santa, and candy for the children. With a mission to stop hunger, donations and food drops are welcome and encouraged at this event. Even outside of the Wisconsin Dells Christmas events to choose from, this is a continent-wide occurrence you should see at least once.
