It’s the most magical time on the Prairie with over 500 holiday light vignettes, 1,046 acres for exploration and countless opportunities to step back in history with our storytellers.

A Magical Evening Winter Tradition Returns
Glittering lights, thoughtful storytellers, and warm fires will transport you from your day-to-day into the stories of yesterday and the traditions of tomorrow. A Merry Prairie Holiday (presented by The Hagerman Group) is celebrating its second season at Conner Prairie, starting November 27.

explore our 500+ twinkling light vignettes
- Zoom down the 150-foot hill (no snow required!) at our Polar Bear Plunge sledding hill
- See Santa at his North Pole Workshop as he and his elves get ready for the big night
- Take a spin on Kringle’s Carousel under a moonlit night

Conner Prairie Is Giving Back
Conner Prairie’s service to the youth of Indiana extends far beyond hosting fourth grade field trips. Throughout the year our doors are open to youths facing challenging circumstances via Hamilton County’s Youth Assistance Program and, beginning this year, we’re building a new partnership with A Kid Again, an organization supporting families raising children living with life-threatening illnesses. This holiday season, we’ve invited over 200 of these families to attend a special VIP adventure at A Merry Prairie Holiday to help provide a timeout from the challenges of lifelong illness.
