Christmas at the Seiberling

Christmas in Kokomo

There isn’t a more elegant place to celebrate the season than the Howard County Museum located inside the Seiberling Mansion, and its holiday celebration begins on Nov. 26 and will continue through Dec. 31, 2022.

The Victorian elegance of the Seiberling Mansion is a perfect setting for a stunning collection of beautifully decorated trees, wreaths and garlands, and more. Inside, take in all the holiday beauty, get some ideas for your own tree, and marvel at the dozens of trees in 20 rooms on all three floors of the mansion. Vote for your favorite tree and help pick the People’s Choice! This year’s theme is “A Symbolic Christmas.” 

The Seiberling will be closed in the run-up to the holiday season to let the decorators do their magic. In the meantime, mark your calendar to start the holidays with your family at the Christmas at the Seiberling Opening Night Lighting Ceremony on Saturday, Nov. 26, from 6 to 9 p.m. Santa will arrive at 6 p.m. on Opening Night to help flip the switch and light up the mansion and grounds.
