Holiday Happenings in the Fox Cities

Whether you're staying in the area for the holidays or visiting loved ones, there is plenty to do in the Fox Cities this holiday season.

Events

A Very Neenah December
This season, A Very Neenah Christmas has transformed into A Very Neenah December. While many of the events during this month-long celebration have sold out, there are still plenty of ways to join in on the Christmas cheer. The elves at Future Neenah are collecting letters addressed to Santa in their bright red mailbox. Be sure to have the letters in by December 19 so Mr. Claus can send a message back. Other businesses have gotten into the spirit by decorating their storefronts with beautiful window displays. Take a stroll in downtown Neenah before December 31 to see all of the festive displays.
