[ARCHIVED] Folkways of the Holidays

Folkways of the Holidays

The holidays are a time of deeply-rooted traditions. During “Folkways of the Holidays” at The Landing – Minnesota River Heritage Park, Shakopee, we bring to life the 19th century holiday cultural traditions of the Minnesota River Valley. You’ll see how the traditions of the past can still be found today in our decorations, celebrations, and even the foods we eat. Each weekend in December (prior to Christmas), guests can enjoy horse-drawn trolley rides along snowy lanes of candlelit homes. Attractions include trolleys pulled by draft horses, costumed interpreters, and tours of homes with culturally distinct decorations, crafts, and folk art performances. Food is available for purchase each weekend day. Dress for the weather.

The cost is $8 for ages 18-64 and $5 for children 2-17 and seniors 65+. Children under 2 are admitted free. Hours are Saturdays from 10 a.m.–4 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m.–4 p.m. The last entry is one hour before close.
