Sankt Nikolaus Fest

Sunday, December 2nd

All are welcome to enjoy this nostalgic visit with Christmas past. With a focus on family fun and making lasting memories, the Athenaeum Foundation brings traditional holiday favorites to ring in the season of joy.

Since 1985, the Sankt Nikolaus book of names has kept the name and age of every child who has visited with St. Nikolaus. At check in, your child’s name is added for a personalized visit with St. Nikolaus himself!

All proceeds from this fundraising event benefit the care and maintenance of the Historic Athenaeum.
