Enjoy the sounds of the holidays

Drawing record crowds for a Winter Festival

Join us December 1-4, 2022 for the Annual Victorian Sleighbell Parade and Old Christmas Weekend

Step back in time as you take part in one of Michigan’s most unique holiday celebrations.  An entire weekend of excitement including the Victorian Sleighbell Parade with horse-drawn entries, bagpipers, reindeer meet and greet and carolers elegantly dressed in Victorian style attire. The highlights of the parade are the draft horses pulling a 30 foot Christmas tree down River Street followed by a beautiful display of luminaries, caroling, and the lighting of the tree.

The entire Old Christmas Weekend is filled with lovely events including the Festival of Trees and guided tours of the historic 1894 Lumber Baron Mansion, which now houses the Dempsey Manor Bed and Breakfast Inn and Victorian Tea Room. Manistee is a wonderful place to pick up gifts for everyone on your list, catch a show at the recently renovated Vogue Theatre or simply enjoy the magical experience of the beautifully decorated historic Downtown.
