A Carillon Christmas

Dayton's Newest Holiday Tradition!

** There is no charge to view or visit the Carillon Tree of Light **

The lighting of the Carillon Tree of Light will kick off a month of holiday festivities at Carillon Historical Park. Festive holiday activities will be available during A Carillon Christmas, November 24 through December 30. We hope you will join us for an evening of holiday fun!

A Carillon Christmas transforms Carillon Historical Park's 65-acre campus into a winter wonderland of sparkle, magic, and holiday cheer! Your ticket provides you access to:

Santa in the Transportation Center  *  Candy Cane Slopes  *  Carillon Christmas Cafe  *  The Carousel of Innovation ($1 per ride)  *  Roundhouse Cafe  *  Museum Store Shopping  *  Morris and Hetzel Bakery  *  Gristmill Christmas Village  ...and so much more!

Reservations are required. Please reserve a specific time of arrival for your group and do your best to arrive during that 30-minute window of time. Tickets now available for Nov. 24-Dec. 17. Tickets for Dec. 18-Dec. 30 will be available on December 1st.

To encourage compliance with Governor DeWine's statewide, overnight curfew, we have adjusted the hours to 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm seven days a week.

Our valued, long-time partner, the Carillon Park Rail and Steam Society, will not be operating train rides this season. As an all-volunteer organization comprised primarily of senior citizens, they are unable to provide the personnel necessary for the safe operation of their scale railroad equipment.

Please maintain a six foot distance from others while visiting the park. Markers have been placed throughout the campus to promote social distancing.

We are requiring everyone to wear masks covering noses and mouths at all times while at the Park, whether indoors or outdoors, to help ensure the safety of all guests, volunteers, and staff. The unique blend of popular indoor and outdoor spaces necessitates this practice.
