Christmas at the Courthouse

“Christmas at the Courthouse” has become a time honored tradition.

The McLean County Museum of History opens its doors to the community each year on the first Saturday of December for a day of free family fun and holiday cheer. Visitors can enjoy live musical performances, caroling, storytelling, homemade cookies and cider, hands-on crafts, a visit with Santa Claus, and more!

Santa makes his annual stop 11 a.m.-2 p.m., and world-famous storyteller Mike Lockett returns from a recent tour of China. Special this year, we will hold an unveiling of our first Visitors Center item at 11 a.m. featuring Reggie Redbird, Andy Shirk with Beer Nuts, Bloomington Mayor Tari Renner, and Museum Board President Craig Alexander. Don’t miss the fun!

Join us Saturday, Dec. 6 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. immediately after the annual Jaycees Holiday Parade that ends on our Museum Square.

This annual gift to the community is sponsored by State Farm Bank.
