Christmas in Coloma all Weekend, Dec. 13 & 14!

making wreaths at Christmas in ColomaCome celebrate the Christmas season in an old-fashioned, hands-on, playful way! Both Saturday and Sunday, December 13 and 14, children and adults can enjoy playing games, making holiday wreaths and candles, and buying high quality home-made crafts and products from local and area artisans. This is the place to get your children’s photo with Santa!

Food and beverage are available in our lovely historic park in Coloma, and plenty of historically costumed and knowledgeable volunteers will help bring history to life. They even bring snow to the valley for fun! The event runs from 10am – 4pm both days. Parking is $7 for an entire carload. For more information see our Christmas in Coloma Article.

This weekend, a highlight in the park, is run by the Gold Discovery Park Association, the “cooperating association” of the Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park. GDPA supports a variety of programs for children and adults — as well as projects that help preserve historic buildings and maintain park facilities. All revenue generated by the Gold Discovery Park Association — including those raised at this fun weekend — stays right here to fund the Park’s programs and opportunities for visitors. Thanks for your support! You and your friends and family are welcome to come back and enjoy Coloma all year round!
