Feel the magic of the season and make memories during Christmas time in Wichita, Kansas. The Heart of the Country is a must-visit Midwest destination year-round, and wintertime is especially loaded with holiday activities and unique experiences. You’ll find plenty to do, whether you’re planning on fun with friends or a romantic getaway.
You can count on annual traditions such as 2 million lights strung throughout 30+ themed gardens at Illuminations at Botanica Wichita; lights, activities, Santa and live registered North American reindeer Itsy-Bitsy and Sparkle at Fulton Valley Farm’s Country Christmas ; Victorian Christmas at Cowtown on Dec. 1-2 & 8-9; and Wild Lights at the Sedgwick County Zoo. New this year is the inaugural Kansas Global Holiday Market. Inspired by the winter holiday markets in Europe, the market will be a festive place to shop for artisan gifts from around the globe.
