Silver City puts on its finest from the 19th Century for the annual Victorian Christmas Evening at the Silver City Museum. Reenactors dressed in clothing from the 1880s help visitors celebrate in the style common to Silver City before the turn of the century, and a visit from a frontier Father Christmas is always a favorite for kids and parents alike.

The 30th Annual Victorian Christmas Evening will be December 11, from 4 pm to 9 pm, and will feature traditional decorations, music, hot mulled cider and holiday treats, all in the spirit of an old-fashioned community celebration. Visitors are welcome and need not be dressed in clothing from the period to enjoy the evening.

Founded in 1967, the Silver City Museum is operated by the Town of Silver City with support from the non-profit Silver City Museum Society and grant support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Museum collections include some 20,000 objects relating to the peoples and history of southwest New Mexico.
