Experience a wonderland of Christmas festivities in Ste. Genevieve during the annual Holiday Christmas Festival. A cultural celebration of 500 years of holiday music, performed by renowned musicians from across the region, is featured at free performances in historic churches and other downtown venues throughout the weekend. A Christmas parade, caroling, colonial
decorations, free pictures with Santa for the little ones, and so much more make this a truly memorable event. In addition, Ste. Genevieve Art Guild hosts an Art Show & Sale, downtown shops offer refreshments, some historic site offer open houses, and you can delight in an old-fashioned Christmas Tree lighting ceremony on Saturday evening at the Welcome Center – a truly marvelous event!
