Santa Claus is Coming to Town
One of Cooperstown's most beloved traditions is the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus at their home away from home on Main Street! The cottage, located in Pioneer Park, is a delight for the young and young at heart, and adds to the festive atmosphere in the village. Garland and other holiday decorations adorn the lamp posts along Main Street, making it the perfect backdrop for your visit. After you meet with Santa, be sure to shop nearby stores for unique gifts to check everyone off of your list!
What could be better than a winter stroll through a charming historic country village? Enjoy an intimate, hour-long guided walking tour of The Farmers' Museum and see it dressed in its winter finery during their Holiday Lantern Tours. Tour the museum's sparkling grounds as guides lead the way by lantern light. Learn how the winter holidays were celebrated in our region in years past. Plan your visit with a stay at The Otesaga during our Holiday Lantern Tours Package, which includes tickets to this special event, discounts at The Farmers' Museum and Fenimore Art Museum gift shops, and more.
