your visit

Conner Prairie by Candlelight

This family-friendly 90-minute walking tour takes you back more than 175 years ago to Prairietown where it’s the night before Christmas.

Meet a variety of characters in their homes and learn how new settlers to Indiana’s frontier carried on their family traditions.

Meet the Ullmans who are celebrating Hanukkah. Discover who Belznichol is at the Golden Eagle Inn, and then visit with the Curtis family to hear about Santa Claus and who he might visit that night.

A new visitor to Prairietown will surprise the schoolmaster and add her own story about the holiday. Join Dr. Campbell at his home for dancing and singing as he and his family ring in the holidays!

You can end your night by joining the rowdies outside around the bonfire for a song or story.

This program is recommended for ages 7 and older and is ideal for guests who prefer a more structured program in the evening hours.
