Even when there's a chill in the air, there are plenty of activities at Silver Dollar City to make you feel warm & cozy inside and out this November and December! Here is just one example of a Christmas itinerary sure to warm both body and soul:

  • Grab a sweet and delicious treat from Eva & Delilah’s Bakery to enjoy as you stroll around Silver Dollar City’s Square. Eva & Delilah’s has just about anything your sweet tooth could possibly be craving including gourmet cinnamon rolls, pastries, gigantic cookies and more. They also have hot & savory cheese breadsticks if you’re not in the mood for sweets. 

Tip: The Hospitality House located between the turnstiles and the Square carries Silver Dollar City sweatshirts, gloves, hats and other items to keep you comfy as you explore the park.

  • Also located inside the Hospitality House is the entrance to Marvel Cave, one of Missouri’s deepest caverns. The temperature inside the cave remains at a comfortable 56-60 degrees year-round. Regular tours of this natural treasure depart frequently and are included in your park admission. 

Tip: Each evening you can tour the cave just like the pioneers did – by lantern light! Lantern Light tours can be reserved for a nominal fee; please note, however, that children under age 8 are not allowed on Lantern Light Tours.

  • With Christmas on the way, now is a great time to do a little shopping. Even if you’re all done with your lists, the window shopping is beyond compare. 60 shops carry a dazzling array of items to browse and all of Silver Dollar City’s shops are nice and toasty. 

Tip: Don’t worry about hauling your purchases around the park with you. Silver Dollar City shops offer package pickup so you can round up your treasures at the end of your visit. Just ask any of the friendly shop hosts for more details.

  • Silver Dollar City is The Home of American Craftsmanship and you can watch master craftsmen at work as they demonstrate their talents including taffy making, peanut brittle making, glass blowing, pottery and more. 

Tip: Be sure to check the Silver Dollar City app or your Pathfinder newspaper for craft demo schedules.

  • There are so many good things to eat at Silver Dollar City that it’s hard to know where to begin. If you’re looking for a hearty sit-down meal, you’re in luck. Enjoy a delicious traditional holiday buffet on the Square at Molly’s Mill or Reunion Hall. Indoor, partially enclosed and heated outdoor seating is also available at Wagon Works Grill, Traveler’s Stop, Rivertown Smokehouse, Lumbercamp and Crossroads Pizza.

Concession stands throughout the park also offer warming beverages and seasonal walk-away treats. You can find hot chocolate, wassail, coffee and cappuccino as well as s’mores, walking tacos, hot apple dumplings and more.

  • Of course, if you’re at An Old Time Christmas you absolutely cannot miss the outstanding selection of holiday entertainment. Two Broadway-style productions: ALL-NEW Home For Christmas as well as the return of A Dickens’ Christmas Carol featuring a NEW musical score head the lineup, but family favorites such as the Silver Dollar Saloon’s Frontier Fa-La-La Follies are a must-see while you’re here, too.

Tip: All Silver Dollar City shows are free with your park admission, but if you’d like to skip the line and reserve seating for the production shows, Show Lover’s Passes are available for Home For Christmas and A Dickens’ Christmas Carol starting at $12 plus tax, per person, per show.

  • Silver Dollar City is truly a magical place for kids at Christmas. Make sure to visit with St. Nick himself at Santa’s Cottage where he’ll be until he returns to the North Pole after Dec. 23.

  • Finally, don’t forget to get a loaf of cinnamon bread from Sullivan’s Mill or a box of cinnamon rolls from Eva & Delilah’s to take home!
