Christmas In Kentucky

 Saturday, December 6, 2014

11:00 AM - 2:00 PM


Join us as the Kentucky Museum host its eighth annual holiday event Christmas in Kentucky. This free, family-oriented event has become a holiday tradition with many area residents. Conveniently scheduled after the Christmas Parade, Christmas in Kentucky is guaranteed to put guests of all ages in the holiday spirit!

Christmas in Kentucky always incorporates the holiday spirit with the WKU spirit. Big Red will be weaving his own special brand of magic, while carols are sung by the amazing Treblemakers. Children love the ornament making in the museum's "Big Red Nation" area. A variety of ornament making and activities are staffed by Hilltopper athletes,  and the WKU Chemistry Club.


Sponsorship Opportunity

Christmas in Kentucky is a holiday tradition for many families with attendance averaging between 1,000 and 1,200. The Kentucky Museum needs your help to sponsor this wonderful event. Sponsorship opportunities begin at $100.
