This year Christmas in Steubenville will have new and exciting additions.
Our annual Christmas Parade to be held on December 12th at Noon in downtown Steubenville has a brand new theme “Sights & Sounds of Christmas: Nutcracker Dreams” to coincide with the newly established “Nutcracker Village” located at Fort Steuben Park. The “Nutcracker Village” will be festively decorated with trees, lights, and of course some 35 life-sized Nutcrackers and will run from December 4th until January 10th. The 6′ Nutcrackers are manufactured locally at Nelson’s Fine Arts & Gifts and can be custom designed for purchase or rental.
Another new addition this year is the Advent Market, which will also take place at the Fountain area of Fort Steuben Park. The Advent Market will be open December 4th (4pm-9pm), December 5th (3pm-9pm), December 8th, Light-up Night (4pm-8pm), December 11th (4pm-9pm) and December 12th, Christmas Parade Day, (Noon-9pm). The Market will feature Food, Local Artisans, Christmas Gifts, Hayrides, Music and fun for the whole family!
Also, inside Historic Fort Steuben/ Steubenville Visitor Center will be ‘Christmas Wonderland’. A beautiful, and extensive, display of trees, trimmings, lights, and many other wonderful ‘surprises’. It will be open to visitors from December 1st through January 31st. There will also be a Christmas Shop, featuring a large selection of Christmas decorations and items, in addition to the Fort Steuben Museum Gift Shop. The Visitor Center is open Monday through Friday from 10am – 4pm. The visitor center will be closed for Christmas Holiday from December 24th through January 4th, and during that time, Christmas Wonderland, may be visited by appointment.
